Not in love with Valentine's Day

It's not enough that I have to help my two first graders make a
Valentine for each child in their class. I'm OK with that. We made
the Valentines and we had fun. Hooray!

But then on Monday I learn that part of their "homework" this week is
to make a mailbox for their Valentines. Shouldn't that be something
they do at school where they have, you know, art supplies on hand?
Now I've got to dig out a couple of shoe boxes, get some heart covered
art supplies and help my kids decorate them. Oh joy.

Thanks teacher.

It's all just a giant front to stuff them full of sugar and red dye anyway.
