I know, it's been way to long, since I've been on here. And believe me, you will soon find out what has been taking up so much of my "free" time ;-)! But that is a post for another day. But I couldn't help taking some time out this morning and letting you in for a special Valentines story, brought to you by Evan... Evan's preschool class had a Valentine's Day party today. And because I'm passing on to him great qualities such as procrastination, we did his cards last night and a few this morning before school.
Evan isn't much for having friends. Hmmm just like his mama, I guess. It is February and he still won't tell us any of the kids' names in his class. He just doesn't see the need in making friends and remembering their names. He tells me that he plays with some friends at school, but when I ask him what their names are he tells me, "I don't know, mom".
His teachers sent home valentines last week with specific instructions. He was to color, cut and make valentines with the hearts they sent home. Great idea - this way every kid has the same cards, no one gets left out and we don't have to run around the whole city trying to find Mario valentines.
This was an AWESOME way to find out what kids are in his class. He had me say all the names and after some of the names were mentioned he would say, "yep that's my friend". So apparently he does have some kids he plays with more than others.
And...apparently he's a ladies man. Because the friends he talked about the most were girls. While coloring Gina's heart, he would say things like, "she follows me around and asks to play." And while coloring Kylee's heart he said, "She likes to tell me to do puzzles with her."
"And do you play with her?", I questioned.
Evan shrugs his shoulders and says, "yep!"
And when coloring Eva's card, he told me he wanted it extra special because ...
"I love Eva!!"
Ummmm excuse me, kid??
What makes Eva so special, Evan.
"Moooommmm, her name is just like mine except I have an "N" ... and she is nice"
This morning, 5 minutes before having to leave, I realized Evan hadn't made his teachers any cards. So we scurried around to make a couple right quick. After he was finished, he asked if he could draw Eva another Valentine, "because I like Eva. Well I love Eva and I want to draw her a special picture."
So in the mind of my 4 year old, what possibly could show more affection to his valentine then drawing...
Princess Peach, of course, because "she is a girl in Mario and you can't draw Mario for a girl because Mario is a boy."
Aww it's true love!
And he drew her a portrait, because "she has pretty hair that goes everywhere."
What more can I say...I'm speechless ;-)
