OT: valentine’s Day box : OT

anyone else have to put a box together for their kids. My goodness when I was a kid you had a shoe box covered in paper with a slot cut in it. Not now, these kids want something fun and different.  So tonight when when I got home we finished up the box.   I wanted her to make an egg or a grill wife said to do a toilet and put unwrapped kisses in the bowel but Norah wanted a vending machine.   So we know how that goes.   Anyways shouldn’t ramble but post photos of the boxes you’ve built.   Let’s see how crafty you guys are!    Here’s my effort.

    I'd love another one of those IPA's you had in NOLA.  Got the popcorn.  @ryantt, brother, please elaborate.

  • Dude that is some serious commitment. Well done. 

    If you are are willing to pick him up from the principals office before lunch you can add a payment square where he can stick his head up for a kiss.

  • I just saw that said Norah, not Noah. 

    Dont make a kissing booth.  Give her a taser. Boys are dirty little monsters.

    Yeah one of my kids was supposed to do that for his first year of preschool, but I didn't know about it so he went there brown grocery bag with his name on it.  But you werent allowed to call it a valentines party.....it was a "February friends party" or something like that.  That was one and only year he went to public school.

    I usually get reminded 20 min after bedtime that they need a box the next day.

    Boxes for girls I get, but I never understood making one for my son.

    A guy I work with was always eating pulled pork. Asked him about it one day and his kid was supposed to sell 100 lbs for a fundraiser but never told him till the day before. Fun times ahead.
