i'm pretty sure my decision to make these homemade valentine's with my son was a result of a major case of mom guilt, temporary insanity, and a slight urge to open that hot glue gun that's been sitting in my closet...in the package. luckily, my daughter opted for the $1.99 doggie/kitty vtine tattoo pack at walgreens, so we only had to do a little doctoring to those. these pirate patches, however took a little longer. not too long though and my son's interest in the glue gun kept him on task. but let me tell you that my table looks nothing like it does in this how-to video. nor were my kids falling all over each other with adorable laughs and hugs. i did put my extra glue sticks in a ball glass jar though. ding!
At some point, my sweet two year old and I started calling each other besties. She has other besties too, like her wa-wa's (aka grandmas), her favorite sitters, sometimes her brother, and other "friends" that live in her crib. One day she received a pair of pink leopard print rain boots and that night she insisted on sleeping with her new goodies....they were brand new, of course, and hadn't been worn. She snuggled those boots like a worn out loved teddy bear. This blog is to keep track of all my besties and pink leopard print wellies. xo
