A Valentine for Ewe

Chrissy spreads the valentine's day cards out in front of her, her heart heavy.

You're still filling out those valentines, honey? What's taking so long?

Just LOOK at these valentines.

The sappy valentines lay before her.

"Bee mine"? I can't give that to a boy! They'll think I LIKE them!

The only one remotely platonic is "Beary kind"... but like I really want to give that to some scab-eater.

I just think the makers of these kits need to get a litle more realistic..

You are fowl

It’s kind of late, but if you simply MUST have “You Are Fowl” as a card, I added it to the Zazzle shop here. If you can’t see it yet, it may take a day to process.

OR you can print these mini valentines for FREE if you want!

Here is the pdf of all the valentines

And one of just the FOWL valentines

Happy Valentine’s Day, everybody!

  1. I think you have found your calling – realistic kid Valentines. I always had that problem, too, when I was a kid. Honestly, I think any boy I would have given the last “You are Fowl” one to would have been ecstatic!

  2. Haha, I always loved picking out Valentine’s to give out at class and then reading the ones I got to figure out who was secretly in love with me. I would have liked to give out the “You Are Fowl” though to a few people I know. Heck, I’d even give that one out to some people I know now!

    1. Oh, I used to do it, too. I would analyze the handwriting… did he spell my name right? Did he write it really carefully or with some flourish? ….wait, did his mom write this? Ah, Valentine’s Day.

  3. I think I specifically remember being a little jerk and skipping the valentine envelopes of icky boys in elementary school. I absolutely love the cards on this one, though, all of them. I also appreciated the list of names in the first panel with the pencil detail.

  4. Great post. I remember my girls filling out the cards. My youngest daughter carefully thought about each Valentine and who she would give it too. She did not want to give a card to many of her classmates, I don’t recall how we got around that one without hurting feelings. Have a great day.

  5. I loved this! I also used to agonize over what cards to give and what lovey word might be misinterpreted. I even agonized over the messages on the conversation hearts. Thank God they finally made benign ones like “you’re cool”. I still remember the card I got from a boy I liked that I was hoping would be lovey-dovey. Instead it was Mr. T: “I pity the fool who won’t be my valentine.”

    Those valentines you made are the best!

  6. Happy Valentine’s Day to you!

    These are so awesome!

    Also, I was away and just read through all the posts that I have missed out on and my favorite one is the one about making barf! You are like my long lost sister :P

  7. So funny! My kids haven’t quite hit that point yet as far as writing them. But every now and then when my son gets one from a girl who likes him, it doesn’t matter what it says, the verdict is always “Ew!” Can’t wait until they fret over the messages they send.

  8. Ahahaha…I was just reminiscing with my roommate about this very thing the other day. Valentines are such a big deal in elementary school! Now I’m all grown up…and I hardly care at all who gets which Barbie valentine when I bring them to work tomorrow :) Except Chris D. is DEFINITELY not getting the one that says “U R Cool” because, well, why lie?

    Happy Valentine’s Day!

  9. Loved. Really loved. I’ve share with my favorite people. I really wanted to reblog today, but my son begged for his Valentine to be top post. Kids always win. You might like his hand-drawn perspective on the day, not too far off from You are Fowl, a 4th-grader’s card:


    Happy Valentine’s Day! My kids and I very much enjoy the work (I’m sure it is work) that you do to keep us entertained.

  10. ps. check out mine…im a beginner and my first blog is kinda short so wont take too long…but i need some recommendations regarding the topic of discussion!!! :)

  11. This cracked me up! I used to carefully choose the least incriminating conversation heart messages for the boys’ valentines. It took me forever and drove my mom nuts- she should have bought red hot hearts.

  12. Isn’t it possible to buy a box of children’s valentines that just say “Happy Valentine’s Day” on them?

  13. Reblogged this on The Middlest Sister and commented:

    I’m taking a short break from blogging in order to focus on a super-big project for The Middlest Sister. It is somewhere in the vicinity of 400 panels, so I have been cutting and pasting for 8+ hours every day and expect to keep on doing so until the very last panel is complete. I promise to return with a new comic shortly after that! Until then, here’s a reblog from last year. Happy Valentine’s Day!

  14. 400 panels???? wow!
    Take all the time you need! I know this will be exceptionally good!
    I’ll miss your posts but I can’t wait to see the fruits of your hard labor!

    p.s. thanks for the valentines! looooooove them! the you are fowl one is pure genius! ;)

  15. I missed this last year – I love it! Like so many others, I can definitely relate to agonizing over which card to give to whom. ;{ Looking forward to the big project.

  16. Best Valentines Card ever! I may start handing them out to all the attractive women at work, knock them down a peg or two. 8)

  17. Hey Nicki, when’s the big secret project going to be unveiled? I’m dying for some more Middlest Sister hilarity.
