Valentine's Card

G was clutching this when I picked her up from nursery yesterday. She'd done it herself, although I suspect she may have had a bit of help with the writing.

Her nursery key worker said: "She's made this for you." Without thinking, I said to G, "Oh well, we're going to have to give this to mummy later aren't we?" The key worker looked at me blankly. It was only later that I realised little girls are supposed to give Valentine's cards to their dads.

I suppose I could have given it to Mrs J anyway, and just pretended it was from me. Probably much better than I could have managed.

Little elf made one for me too - she was so proud of it. It does strike me as a slightly weird custom, mind.
