Valentine's Day

We thought it would be fitting to start a blog for Mantha on Valentine's Day because February 14 has been Congenital Heart Disease Awareness Day. We'll post Mantha's story to date in installments but wanted to share this bit about about this morning.

Mantha overheard me ask her older sister to get out the "Mother's Day pot". That's the pot that daddy gave mama for Mother's Day last year. Mantha misunderstood and thought that today must be Mother's Day and she was all set to celebrate Mother's Day.

She was gently corrected by her older sister who told her that today was Valentine's Day. Valentine's Day is the "day you tell people you love them". There was a pause and then Mantha responded with "[BooBear] I love you". A few minutes later, Mantha came to find me. She surprised me by walking into my bedroom and saying "Mommy, I love you". I found out a little later that Mantha was just doing what you're supposed to do on Valentine's Day. Tell the people you love that you love them.

Happy Valentine's Day and be sure to tell your loved ones that you love them!
