An hour past her bedtime, after an epic meltdown in a bowling alley, she opened a valentine from her grandparents.
An hour past her bedtime, while watching Jake & the Never Land Pirates and waiting for her father to put the baby down, she colored the valentine from her grandparents.
Look, Mom! They’re having a tea party. Doesn’t it look nice? I’d like to join them for tea and cakes.
It’s amazing and wonderful how a valentine and some markers changed her night, made her happy, allowed her to bound up the stairs and blow me a kiss and fall asleep happily, without any more tears.
Thanks Nana and PopPop. You made her night.
