Valentine's Day in first grade
Because the parents had to take the baby to the pediatrician at exactly the wrong time, we needed a grandparent to attend the Valentine's Day party, and that was me. I discovered several things that have changed since the previous generations were in grade school.
First, no paper valentines. Instead they had a whole sheet of Valentine stickers, distributed to everybody in the room. Many people got two. Some of the kids affixed their stickers to their faces instead of to their clothing.
