Grant has been drawing lots of little Valentines for me. Lots and lots of drawings. To mix it up a bit, he has begun making heart shapes around the house for me. Sometimes they’re out of Legos, sometimes out of blocks or Crayons.
He often will arrange the heart shape while I watch. That was the case for these two hearts.
Grant: “Two hearts for you, Mom! One is me and one is you!”
Me: “Oh, Grant! That is so sweet! I love it. Thank you.”
Grant: “Wait! I have something else for you!”
He dismantled the two hearts, created one big loop and made this:
“Here you go Mom! For you! It’s a mushroom cloud!”
There’s nothing quite like a Valentine from an 8 year old boy.
