How do you make Valentine's Day meaningful to a four year old? I had him sign his name, to the twelve home made cards I made for all his friends. By about the tenth labored signature, before completely giving way to his inner pirate's need to run around the house and whack things with a sword, Sam had mastered the placement of the A after the S, and before the M. I ran around after him asking for quotes to scribe from his point of view; "Sam (I duck to not get beheaded) tell me something you love about Emily..."

"Mom, I just love her. She plays with me." Oh right. That is what I am supposed to be doing instead of trying to maintain appearances with all of his friends' parents.

En guard!
