…Chocolate covered pretzels with rainbow sprinkles!
I don’t know exactly when it began, but at some point I started saying to Annabelle, “I love you more than cupcakes.”
And then I began changing it up.
“I love you more than sunshine.”
Or “I love you more than giraffes.”
She quickly picked up on the game and started replying with her own endings.
“Mommy, I love you more than pizza.”
“I love you more than broccoli.” (She really does love broccoli.)
Or her biggest compliment, “Mommy, I love you more than hummus.” (Annabelle considers hummus to be its own separate food group. She would be happy with a bowl of hummus and a spoon…no crackers needed.)
Our game inspired me to make a little Valentine’s Day decoration. Something both sentimental and sweet. (And an added bonus? This lovey-dovey decoration took me about 10 minutes to make and was completely free since I already had everything on hand. You gotta love that.)
On a red piece of card stock I wrote the phrase, “I love you more than…”. (For some extra love I threw in a few tiny hearts.) Then I framed it (using a frame I had on hand from Annabelle’s Sesame Street Birthday Party). I left the end of the phrase open so we could use a dry erase marker to fill in different endings depending on our mood.
Now…are you ready for some more Lovey-Dovey posts? Great because it’s time for another edition of Collectively Creative.
