Valentine, I CHEWS You Printable

.This year Owen REALLY wanted to do bubblegum for his classmate valentine treat. It’s probably because gum is off limits in our house. No, it’s not just because I’m a mean terrible mommy.

When Did THIS Happen?

.Not that long ago, Ryan’s drawings were scribbles.  He didn’t understand staying inside the lines and he made the entire page one color.
