Love Note

.
A few weeks ago, I was digging through my first grade son’s backpack and found a note.
.

Love Note

.
I asked him what it was and he said “a love note”.  He said it as though of course I should know that.
.
I told him it had a dollar wrapped around it.  He said “I know, she said I could keep it”.
.
I opened it up and read outloud (Max’s hands were over his ears) written in crayon was…
.
“I love you, I know you love me.  Can I be your girlfriend?”
.
It was so cute and sweet.  The paper was covered in hearts and stars.  I was impressed with the girls confidence.  I wouldn’t have had the guts to do that in college, much less first grade. It was a lovely little note and she is a sweet girl who obviously has a keen eye for charming boys.
.
Anyway, we wrote a note back and included the dollar bill.
.
“Thanks for the nice note to Max.  We can’t keep the dollar because Max can’t have a girlfriend until he is 23”
.
Cute story huh?
.
So, a few days ago was Valentine’s Day.  We don’t usually do much for the big V day.  We get our kids some plastic heart or something filled with chocolates and exchange nice cards.
.
This particular Valentines Day, my husband left for work before I woke up.  I got the kids up and out to the bus and sat down at my computer to work for a while before I opened the shop.
.
I needed something from my work bag, so I opened up my bag and found this inside.

Aimee's Love Note

.
I opened up the letter and written in crayon was…
.
“I love you, I know you love me.  Can I be your Valentine?”
.
Yep, I know.  I felt loved and lucky.
.
I wish I had thought of it:)
