Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

Happy Valentine's Day

Cameron has always enjoyed making little gift bags for his friends…whether it’s for his birthday, his siblings’ birthdays, Halloween or Valentine’s Day. He gets very excited about putting the goodies together.

This year he didn’t change at all. I honestly think that the giving out of his goodie bags is more exciting to him than what he’s going to get.. The pickings were pretty slim for “boy valentines,” but at CVS we found some cool 3D bugs that “grow” as you rotate them.

On the back is where you write the names of the receiver and sender. But Cameron also decided, on his own, to also make a custom picture for each of his friends and classmates on each Valentine. So if his friend liked football, he drew something and wrote “Touchdown baby!” (or something like that). If the girl sits near him, he drew a picture of the girl and him at the table. It was very cute.

I doubt if the kids will appreciate his original artistry, or the thought he put into it, but I’ll definitely cherish his Valentine kindness in my memory.


On a different note, I got radiated today, but I’ll write about that tomorrow.

Happy Valentine's Day Cari! I will be sending you an email in a day or two. But saw the cute post and had to ask- is that Max's triangle tanagram worksheet??? Wow!

No tanagram WS. Those are cheese wedges from the game Mousetrap! You're so funny!

Where did you find those tights for Ella? They are so cute.

It is good to know that Cameron has such a giving heart at a young age. Hopefully, he will share that spirit with Little Max and Ella.

How wonderful! How creative! How generous and caring! That boy is an amazement! I think this one good post covers all of the ones that weren't so good. He is marvelous, darling! Still praying, always.

Love you much,
Auntie Nita
