Your reaction is so worth any time and effort I put into the little surprises! You say things like, "You made that for ME?!" and "It's BEAUTIFUL!" and "THANK you, Mommy!" and "Ha! I LOVE IT!"
So satisfying! But dangerous because your awesome reactions make me want to spoil you rotten!
For Valentine's Day this year, I created two different options for you. I love using Valentine's Day to note what you are really into each year so this year I had to do something with Rapunzel.
I tried a few options, but they all revealed my still-learning-not-so-awesome Photoshop skills:
So I abandoned the Rapunzel idea and decided to go with a photo that I loved from your 3 year old photos:
That was the one we ended up handing out to your friends, but you were in L-O-V-E with the second Rapunzel one. Your reaction was so satisfying. You kept putting your face two inches from the computer screen and saying, "Mommy, do I have long beautiful hair? Am I Rapunzel!? Ha! I'm so beautiful!"
So I printed a few of those as well with the thought that you could give them to some of your non-school friends. But when our friend Camille came over, you refused to give her one. You wanted to keep all of them. I guess the idea of exchanging Valentines was lost on you. The funny thing is, Camille was equally upset about having to hand over her Valentine for you! Maybe in a few years you'll get the idea.
Either way, it was still worth it to create a few little Valentine's Day surprises for you! You make it so fun to surprise you!
