I’m not really that big on Valentine’s Day. Especially this year- Taylor bought me loads of wonderful presents for Christmas and my birthday, then he just bought the new mattress and I just bought my new computer…. we’re kind of strapped. HOWEVER I did want Sym to have a nice Valentine’s Day, so on the weekend we went out shopping and I bought her some gold sparkly shoes and a twirly blue dress for the dance, and while I was scrambling to finish my etsy orders on Monday I was ALSO scrambling to make white chocolate confetti popcorn for her class party.
I used white, pink and red heart-shaped confetti sprinkles to make mine more Valentine-y, and it turned out SO GOOD, cute and delicious.
But! Her Valentine’s Day sucked! Normally the grade fives and sixes have a dance and the grade sevens have their own dance, but there were too many after school activities going on this week so they just had one dance together. I guess having the older kids there made everyone shy/too busy trying to be cool, because Sym told me no one even danced except for her and her friends, and this group of girls they don’t like who were apparently doing inappropriate dance moves.
And the party? Everyone was supposed to bring food to share, but guess what? NO ONE DID. That’s right, Sym was the only person who brought anything! Plus, only three other kids brought Valentine’s cards to give out. WHAT IN THE WHAT??? Sym gave out these fortune tellers from Design Mom and spent Monday night at her dad’s folding thirty of them for everyone in her class, and one of her friends had the audacity to complain that there was no difference between them. OH REALLY? AND WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THOSE AND NOT BRINGING ANYTHING AT ALL, HMMMM? Anyway I’m really annoyed and disappointed. Sym left the popcorn at school because they’re going to have a do-over and try to have the party today, but I told her to bring it home. NONE OF THESE UNGRATEFUL VALENTINE GRINCHES DESERVE MY CHOCOLATE POPCORN TBH. Plus I want to eat it myself (shhh).
HOWEVER Sym did make awesome cards for Taylor and me, because she is the best kid in the world.

What a bunch of jerks! How were none of these kids parents involved whatsoever? Like, okay, even if the kids forgot/didn’t tell their parents, you’d think that most parents would be like, “Alright, let me contact the teacher to be sure because my dumb kid probably forgot anyway.” like MY mom used to do (haha).
Right??? HOW DID THEY NOT KNOW THERE WOULD BE A CLASS PARTY ON VALENTINE’S DAY, THERE HAS BEEN A CLASS PARTY ON VALENTINE’S DAY SINCE THE DAWN OF SCHOOL.
Sym and my cousin Alice should be e-buddies – Alice also had the rude shock of going to a school dance with her friends and seeing AN ORGY OF GRINDING
my question is WHY are they even playing Sexy And I Know It at a dance for elementary school students.
