Googly Eyes = Awesome
I know that I'm a handmade mama & will jump right up on my soapbox & sing the praises of handmade at any given moment...but I just never feel it when it comes to valentines. And guess what, I don't feel guilty about it. The Princess & The Frog store bought valentines that Sadie excitedly picked out make her super happy. Also, it makes me happy that I don't have to put a lot of time & thought into making 30 handmade somethings that may not be appreciated much by the 5 & 6 year old crowd. Anyway, that's my excuse.
Well, while at Target, I asked Sadie if she'd like candy bracelets, suckers or heart shaped notebooks with googly eyes to give to her classmates along with her cards. I thought for sure she'd choose the candy bracelets, but as she stood there thinking over her decision, I could hear myself repeating in my mind "super cute googly eyed heart shaped notebooks please!". And then, what do you know!? She opted for the notebooks. She understands the awesomeness of googly eyes, I guess. And as corny as it sounds, at that moment, I felt like such a proud mama.
Sadie is an awesome girl.
