Mama, let's buy flowers for Miss Jessica.
No, baby, not today. Let's wait a bit, okay?
I'll use my money, Mama. Do I have enough?
She hands me her little wallet containing her little allowance out of her little purse. The sign on the basket next to us says $3.99. Buttercup has exactly $4.
Yes baby, but why not wait until Valentine's Day?
She blinks at me before making the choice for herself. She reaches into the basket, selects a pretty bunch of flowers for her preschool teacher, and sets it next to the milk we are buying.
Every day is Valentine's Day when you love someone.
