Valentine's Exhaustion

Anybody else exhausted by all the valentines cards? Among my 4 gradechool age girls, we had about 150 valentines to write out. (My kindergarteners have a half day public school program, as well as a wrap program so that is over 100 valentines for them to "write" out !) My 4th grader is making "homemade" cards on the computer so that is a lot of printer ink. My second grader is all into giving her classmates candy and valentine cards.

Anyone else over-valentined this year?

Not too bad. About 40 combined between my 2 younger boys. My oldest no longer has to do them.

My 5 year old refused to work on his tonight. That means writing all 16-20 out tomorrow. That should be fun. Or not.

He did send Valentines to far away family though, so he's done a few.

Luckily we're homeschooling so this isn't a problem

About 20.  I never really bought into Valentine's that much, so the idea of my two and four year old having parties is over-Valentining enough lol.

My pre-ker was supposed to "write" all his out too. Ummm, so I guess here I go as "that" parent, but no I am not making him address 24 cards.

My first grader has 18 in his class, but he wanted to give to the principal, the secretary, the nurse, etc. And of course, something special for the teacher. He signed his name on them all but did not address to specific people. 

My skids are all in jr high and high school so they don't really get into the valentine thing anymore.

Luckily, DD only had to make 14, plus one for her.

No--thank goodness we are past all that because dd is in 8th grade and too old for that.  I just buy cards for dh, dd, both sets of grandparents, and my favorite aunt (went early to Dollar General this year and found some really good ones for a reasonable price).

My kids are older, but I actually miss those years ... and all the smiles that went with the cards.

Daycare has made no mention of required cards, so zero for our kid this year :)
