It seems that our days this month have been very busy so far, running from one event to the next and planning for upcoming events. So this year for Valentine’s Day, I kinda had a mom-fail. On Monday, Cole and I were discussing what he needed for his school party and he looked at me and asked if I could do his Valentine box.
And I had to tell him I couldn’t do a box like he was used to me doing for him. I have made a minion, a smurf, a football field complete with players, but this year I couldn’t do it for him. Or Cade…
Plus I had even made fun Valentines for them to pass out in the past. This year I just didn’t have it in me.
But after all that he just looked at me and stretched his arms out and hugged me. And all I could think was how this year Valentines Day had snuck on me and I failed them.
Fortunately God sent me a sign that all would be okay. There was a mysterious box on my porch when I came home from work yesterday. I brought it inside only to discover that the shipping label only contained our address for both to and from. Also the card inside had a typed message on it.
The boys were so excited to open it. They are thrilled with the contents as you can see in the picture below.
And to whoever sent us this gift box, please know that we want to wrap that same kind of all accepting hug around you. We wish we could stretch our arms out wide and embrace you. But know this, you are loved by us and most definitely by God!
I should also have shirts by this weekend so if you are planning on attending the Pasta and Pie Fundraiser dinner on Sunday I will have them with me I think. You could pick it up there. Otherwise delivery will occur next week.

I wouldn’t call that a mom fail. It’s more like a tiny tear in your Supermom suit, just big enough to reveal that there is a real human in there. I’m glad you (or at least your boys) got a little extra Valentine fun this year. Now stop beating yourself up and enjoy it!
Thanks for thinking that I have a Supermom suit! Love you guys!
Hi, I’m Kim’s dad, and she nailed it. No way you failed. I think of Cade and your family often and keep all of you in my prayers.
