Mom of the Year

Scene:  Last week, driving 5 year old son home from preschool.
Kid:  Mom, I'm sad.
Me:  Why?
Kid:  I don't have anything to give you for Valentine's Day.
Me:  That's OK, I don't want anything for Valentine's Day.  You love me, I love you, and that's enough.
Kid:  But I need to get you something.
Me:  No, you don't.  You see, Valentine's Day is a Hallmark Holiday.  A company called Hallmark made it up so people would feel obligated to buy things like cards and candy and roses.
Kid:  [pause]  That sucks.

Shawn and I don't make a big deal out of Valentine's Day, but the kids always made me cards, or something in school. Took the pressure off and Hallmark not got a penny!
