This morning I made my boys some heart shaped pancakes. Nothing fancy. I didn't have a special cutter. I didn't cut little heart shaped strawberries to put on top (although my belly is a little sad that I didn't). The mix came from a box (although I did step it up from the "just add water" variety--because there's some of that in my pantry too). I didn't even bother to put it on a regular plate (as in not plastic). I just poured the batter with a little more care than usual.
Sorry Pinterest, but today I'm being real. Because today, the intention and thought went a lot further than the presentation...and that's what this greeting card holiday is really all about.
After saying "It's a heart!" and "I love pancakes!" my now two and half year old insisted that I use a cookie cutter to make his pancakes into snowmen. "Two Frostys." Oh well. Frankly, I'm just happy that he ate breakfast--that's a mother's valentine win.. :)
Happy Valentines Day everyone!
