I originally wrote Will You Be My Valentine? For the now closed LA Moms Blog in February 2009. I revisited it in 2011. The kids are older and Valentine's Day brings up many of the same discussions. Chip is now in first grade...The grade I was in for a pivotal moment in my Valentine's Day life experience. It seems only appropriate we re-examine the topic. I have been talking to a lot of people this week about Valentine's policies. I have also been observing how Chip sees things and how I see things...And how I saw things when I was his age. It's interesting to have childhood memories that you know are trapped in the brain development of that age....And maybe colored by the experiences you have had in the decades since.
