I do, but I don’t know how common it is. Now, my two oldest kids are out on their own, and I won’t send them cards or anything. But when they were still at home, there was always a little something for them on V Day. There will, likewise, be something this year for 11YO mudgirl. Nothing major, just a little box of four chocolates, or a small stuffed animal, something like that. Maybe a cute pair of socks printed with hearts. You get the idea.
I guess I like the idea of letting my kids know that Valentine’s Day isn’t just about romance, it’s about love.
Obviously, if you don’t get your kids anything, you don’t have to defend your position. I guess I’m just interested in figuring out if this practice is fairly widespread, or if it’s just one of my. . .eccentricities.
