When I was kid, I really loved the book I Love You the Pruplest by Barbara M. Joosse. In the story, a mother has two boys who are very different from each other, but both have their strengths that she admires. One night, each asks her who she loves best and to one she replies that she loves him the bluest, and to the other, the reddest. Together, she loves them the purplest.
I’ve always thought that was such a sweet way for a mother to show how she loves each of her children for their individuality. And so I thought I’d write some poems of my own, modeled after Joosse’s. And then I thought they’d be the perfect thing to share for Valentine’s Day.
Together, baby girls, I love you the orangest. Happy almost Valentine’s Day.<3
