My two sons have two very different attitudes about Valentines Day. My oldest son, Jacob, has always been interested in girls. Seriously. He came home from the first day of Pre-K 4 and said he had a girlfriend. He has been girl crazy ever since. My youngest son, Jackson, on the other hand, is 11 and thinks girls still have cooties (YIPPEE!)

Jackson hasn’t liked any of the Valentines in the stores. So we headed to Pinterest for some ideas. I think these are normal and pretty clever for any boy or girl that likes Legos.
