My Valentine

Years ago, my mom started a tradition of sending me a Valentine's package. Over the years, she had become very creative with my gifts, but this year, she truly topped them all. She sent me a Prince. But he didn't start out as a Prince. That took a little work, as does everything that is worth anything...
This is how he started out:
I added a little water and he turned a radioactive green!
And then, in the darkness, a small figure can be seen...
And there he was, my Prince! But he wasn't done growing...

72 hours later, he reached his full height.

Overall, he is a wonderful Prince. He doesn't do much (I blame the plastic barrier), but he does enjoy watching me as I check my email and read the news at my computer.

By the way, his name is Felipe, after the Crowned Prince of Spain....

Love it! He's perfect, albeit a little short but otherwise he can't complain, make a mess for you to clean up and he's mesmorized by you. What more could you ask for?

She got him at CVS. Who knew it was such a versatile place to shop!
