Heart Breaking News

Here it is the 12th and I still had not gotten and info from Claire's school about this year's Valentines Party. Last year, a homeroom mom contacted me and nominated me to bring the damn cupcakes. We got the kids' v-day cards last night getting all prepared and bought two bags of candy for their little party at day care. Both of the kids can barely contain themselves they are so excited. So this morning I sent an email to Claire's teacher, basically asking if I needed to bring anything. This was her response:



There will not be a valentines party this year....we are taking time to pass out valentines on Wednesday morning if the kids choose....She will need 20....you don't even have to put names on them.....It will be a rather quick thing and then they will put them in their backpacks...There will be a party later in the year but not a Valentines party!! Thanks!!



What?? How is this possible? She is the first grade, how can they no give these little dolls a V-Day party? I can remember how important it was for me when I was kid, these parties. It is like a childhood must!! I am sooooo not happy.

How strange to just do away with a party. Is it really that big of a deal to skip a few hours of learning at that age! I don't blame you for being upset, I would be too!

Insane! Did they say why? Valentines day isn't the same without a party.

jenny/momish: She said that it was something school wide that they had decided on. But, my son goes to a different school and theyre having one. Wierd.

How sad! I used to love V-Day parties. Hope that when my kids are in school, they'll have them.
