When my children were young, I started a tradition during the week of Valentine’s Day, and we celebrated LOVE WEEK. The children got new books that centered on loving thoughts and themes. They got little treats that were meant to remind them to Be Sweet. They delighted at the pink milk and the pink mashed potatoes and the pink everything foods we ate.
Now, my children are all grown. The last of my seven turned 18 last October. I can hardly stand it. It really is true: they grow up so fast. I am learning to deal.
While I am dealing, I am focusing my mothering on being grand– the grandmother of one tiny little girl named Linden.
So, what am I reading during the week of love? Books on love that are perfect for this Little Miss.
