I am not sure if Zoe is aware that Target stocks an aisle full of the mass market valentines.  I am totally okay with that.  I am also aware that some day soon she will beg me for a Valentine with Tinkerbell on it.  So I am savoring this time when she is very happy to pick out a theme with me and then figure out how we are going to photograph that theme.  This year we found the “You Rock, Valentine” saying attached to the Pop Rocks and decided that would be fun.  Dancing?  Awesome!  Loud Music?  Let’s do it!!  But the minute we put on the headphones and I said, “Okay, Rock OUT!” I discovered that my vision of rockin’ out and a 5 year old’s vision are pretty different.  It does make for some good outtakes.  And really, as a Mom, I got some great captures of who she is as a little person right now.

We started with this interesting “Rock” face, followed by the running man.  No idea who taught her THOSE moves… icon wink Rock on   Creative Valentine Idea

I finally got some good shots after the running man because she naturally put her hand on her hip.  Does anyone else’s kid do this?  She LOVES to shake her hips.  It cracks me up.  Then we had a little headphone malfunction and she had to sing along to some song.  She is definitely her mothers daughter here.  If she knows three words to a song she will sing along and make up the rest!

Okay, okay… I know you want to see the ACTUAL valentine.  I think it came out pretty cute.  They are 3×3 which is the perfect size for classroom valentines.  I attached them to the Pop Rocks with ribbon and tape.  You could easily do this without the pictures if you wanted.  Just some paper wrapped around the PopRocks and some markers!  Easy Peasy!
