My daughter came home from school on Valentine’s Day, with the cutest smile on her face. She had her mailbox full of the usual cartoon character valentines with her classmates names written on them, which she quickly tossed on the table with disinterest. She said she had a special envelope to read, and she wanted a cup of cocoa to go with it.
I thought oh no, a crush at 7years old…. get thee to a nunnery.
We made the cocoa, sat down on the couch and opened her envelope. It was full of heartfelt letters written to her by every student in her classroom.
