This Valentine’s Day thing is not happening the way we had planned. It is nothing like we thought it would be. We thought our mom was going to buy us materials to make cards to send to our friends but she didn’t. We thought that she was going to make us special treats like heart shaped cookies or a Valentine heart shaped cake but she isn’t going to do that either. We thought there might be new outfits for us but she hasn’t brought out the sewing machine or gotten out boxes of pretty fabric so we guess that isn’t going to happen either. All she does is clean closets and cupboards. That’s no fun at all!!
We decorated our tree and set out our decorations over two weeks ago but Mom didn’t seem to notice. We’ve come to the conclusion that our mom just doesn’t love us anymore.
We got this card from our beary dear friend, Prudence. Isn’t it pretty?
We told mom that she doesn't love us any more and she told us don’t be silly. Now what does that sound like to you? Doesn’t that sound like she’s tired of us? She always liked our silliness before. She would rather spend all day sorting things and putting things into boxes and labeling them or into big black bags and taking them somewhere not here. The hug has been staying in our room because we’re afraid she’s going to put us in one of those bags and that’s just the beginning.
When we asked her if she was going to make us some cookies or a cake she said that she’s doing something called South Beach and doesn’t want the temptation of having sweet treats in the house. Now everyone knows that we bears live for those sweet treats. She did put out some candies for us so maybe she still likes us a little bit.
We wish she would stop with the cleaning and stop doing the South Beach whatever that is and start having some fun with us again. Okay, so Valentine’s Day is a bust but we still have St. Patrick’s Day coming up and then Easter after that. Those are good holidays, right?? We need to figure out how to make our mom want to do things with us again and being the relentless and resourceful little bears that we are we will come up with a plan.
So dear friends, forgive us for not sending you some beary special paw made cards and for not inviting you to share Valentine shaped cookies with us or having fun at our Valentine’s Day party because none of this is our fault. We wanted to do all of those things but it just didn’t happen because our mom would rather clean cubbies.
Happy Valentine’s Day to all of our beary good friends
Bellamine & Wendy
