Since I'm the Room Mom for two third grade classes, I'm getting memos ready to announce next week's Valentine's Day party. We'll be exchanging Valentine's Day cards, making bags to hold all the loot, having a treat, and doing a game where two people compete against each other at the whiteboard, blindfolded, and drawing hearts.
This is my favorite holiday party.
So imagine how shocked I was when another triplet mom told me she got an email from her teacher saying the children would be having a brief "Friendship Letter Exchange Day" next week.
The memo instructed parents to make a "Friendship Letter Exchange Box" at home so the kids could exchange their "Friendship Letters".
Oh, my holy hell. We can't call it Valentine's Day anymore? I'm seeing red and it's not hearts and roses causing it.
If you aren't allowed to call Valentine's Day, Valentine's Day, please chime in, so we can discuss this, pick it apart, and beat it to death with Cupid's arrow.
