Stay-at-Home Dad Entices Wife With Digital Valentine

I am a stay-at-home dad of two young boys.  My wife is a flight attendant and leaves me on my own with our boys for days at a time while she travels the friendly skies.  My boys and I greatly appreciate the sacrifice she makes every time she goes to work, so that we can have a parent at home with our children.  This Valentine’s Day she is working in the morning, but will be able to make it home for a Valentine’s dinner with me.  I wanted to do something special for her to make the day go a little quicker. My wife loves two things; humor and cleanliness.  I decided to combine the two in this Digital Valentine in hopes of enticing her into a frenzy before she arrives home.


I think we’re going to have a good night.

Melted Crayon Heart Valentines

Melted Crayon ValentinesIn preparation for Valentine’s Day, we received this great DIY project from the 247 Community. Lea Laschober discovered some tips and twists to help make Melted Crayon Heart Valentines a quick, fun project with the kids. Any parent knows that there are used, broken, mis-matched, half-eaten bits and pieces of crayons all over their house. You can find them in the junk drawer, the school supplies box at the end of the year, and in the bottoms of their school bags. They’re everywhere. You can not only repurpose ALL of those old crayons, you can also get the kids excited to search for bits and pieces all over the house. Now that’s using your resources!

Thanks to Lea, Josie, Rollie and Alayna for this great tutorial! Continue reading
