St. Valentine’s Day is coming, the high holy day of the pink and fuzzy. The other day we went to the candy store, and the girls got some small white and pink gummi hearts, and my wife got some white and pink chocolate covered pretzels.
It turns out that Sophi liked the hearts more, and Molly liked the pretzels more. They each get one thing for dessert every day, and the other day I asked what they wanted, and rather than answering, Molly immediately started discussing it with Sophi.
"Sophi, how about you get a heart, which is pink, and means love. I’ll get a pretzel, which is pink and white, and also means love, ‘cuz then we’ll be loveable!"
Because, you know, they weren’t before.
