My Valentine

As a single mom by choice who’s been primarily single for this parenting journey, I have made a point to do a little something with Wallace every Valentine’s day. Just for fun, because I can. And let’s not forget, he’s my longest relationship ever. Ha.

For his first Valentine’s, I made him a crochet bowtie and a crochet stuffed heart. He was adorable, of course, and drooled all over everything.

His second year, he painted a white heart on a red shirt. It was cute and he was super proud of it when he wore it!

Last year, I was in Chicago for my much awaited worker’s comp case and it was our first night away from each other. I bought Wallace a pink stuffed fox and cut a heart out of red paper. I missed him, but it was fun to have about 36 hours that I didn’t have to be a parent.

I looked at stuffed animals last week and was not inspired by any of them. Also, we have way too many already! I decided I wanted to make him something and posed the question to the queer single parents by choice group on Fb. I settled on making him an apron and a bowtie and making gluten free vegan sugar cookies with him! Enjoy this flood of pictures and 10 points to anyone who knows who he resembles.

We also made a coffee filter marker craft, but haven’t finished it. Oh, and he made me a Valentine!
