Roses, hearts, chocolates. Conversation candies, cupcakes, glitter, glitter, and more glitter. The Valentine’s season is among us. The day the kids take in treats for the whole class, and a day that you, momma, should be a little bit pampered. It’s the one day of the year that is specially set aside for everyone to celebrate love. There are so many types of love, and it is different for everyone. So, as today is Valentine’s Day, we thought it would be fun to ask our FWMB kids what they think love is. Some answers will make you laugh, some make you say “Awww,” and some make you believe truth really does come from the mouth of babes.
