This year for Valentine's Day my husband wanted the ultimate gift.
For the Brooklyn Zoo to name a cockroach after him.
The zoo was naming their Madagascar hissing cockroaches after people for the low, low price of $10 per roach. And it was what Mike really wanted. So now there's a cockroach in New York named after my husband. Romantic, huh?
Of course, I had nothing to show for it except for the lovely email from the zoo informing my husband of the gift. I wanted to hand him something tangible for Valentine's Day. So I made him this.
The kids made Valentines too. My 19 month old daughter scribbled enthusiastically. My three and a half year old son decided to maintain the bug theme for Valentine's Day, and drew a bedbug saying, "Hi Daddy!" I'm sure we'll cherish it.
