It all started when I brought the girls to Michael’s Stores right around Everly’s birthday. The employees were just starting to put out small gifts and stocking stuffers near the register for the holidays and I heard “MOMMY!! What are those?!”
That was where the “Squishy” obsession began and since that day, we can’t go to Michael’s without looking around for squishy’s!
Thinking about class Valentines, there was really no other direction that made sense for us this year. I knew Everly would be so happy to hand these out to her friends at school!
So at the end of December I sent the text to Kate: “When are you back?! I’m dying to bug you about something!”
And from there our very squishy Valentine was born!
ps – does this play on words sound familiar?!
