childhood vs. motherhood

Valentine's day is creating a dilemma within, my childhood is at war with me as a mother.  One of the few specific things I remember from Elementary school is valentines without candy are lame.  Paper printed with a picture with a name printed on it is lame, unless it comes with something.  But as a mother the last thing I want to do is give my son a bunch of candy to pass out for school.  But I can't neglect the child in me, J picked out airhead valentines. I hate for my son to be the lame kid I didn't like.

  1. We just went through this with V.'s preschool class and attached a candy to each one because especially when you can't read valentines without candy are LAME!
