It was a normal day on the school run. We walked home in the winter sunshine; we chatted about the day; we talked about who our little girl had played with; we got home, had a snack and I went through her book bag for the usual ‘stuff’. And that’s when I came across this… but why is this Valentine’s Day card so special?
Yes, it’s been hand drawn with love from my little girl… that makes it pretty special of course.
Yes, it shows someone on the front (me, I’m told…) with a little crown and hearts for eyes, nose and mouth… that makes it pretty special. Of course it does.
Yes it’s special for both of these reasons but it’s also special because there’s a drawing of a scorpion’s leg on the back!…
I was still smiling over the time our beautiful little girl had taken in making me, her mummy, a lovely card with so much love. I read the lovely sentiment inside and then turned to the back to see… something. So I asked our little girl, “that’s so lovely, thank you. And what have you drawn on the back here?”
“Well mummy, that’s a scorpion’s leg because scorpions live in the desert and it’s hot in the desert!”
And that’s why this valentine’s card is so special…
She’s clearly been learning deserts and the like and that makes it all the more special to me 😉
