In the mood for Love

It’s the countdown to Valentine’s Day. Can you feel the love!!

With a five year old and one year old, its tricky to plan a romantic day or night out and even harder to find the energy to be bothered! Our version of a romantic night, is putting a movie on and falling asleep on the sofa together!

We’re not big on celebrating Valentines, however this year, as it falls on a Sunday, I thought we’d try making it a family day. I came across this cute idea that i’m going to recreate at home. We are going to make a Valentines day family tree.

We’re going to write on little heart notes who in our family we love and why. As a Mother of two boys, I want to from an early age, encourage them to feel confident expressing their feelings and emotions.

I have a pot full of decorative twigs, that have no purpose other than to collect dust, but will be perfect for hanging our little hearts from, a bit like this picture.

My five year old son has a girlfriend! She is the sweetest little girl and at playtime they plan their wedding! They’ve even practiced their wedding dance apparently, which her Mummy and I find hilarious!

I wasn’t expecting Valentines to even be on the radar of a primary school child, but the discussion of who was girlfriend and boyfriend started in reception, to my surprise!

So I came across on Pinterest this cute, innocent Valentines gift, suitable for a child to make and give to their little love!
