Love is smelly.

So I know you've all gotten this email or seen these responses before, but in light of Valentine's Day I thought it'd be cute to share some of my favorite responses to the question "What is love?"
[You can check out all of them here]

"When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth." - Billy, age 4

"Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.” Karl - age 5

“Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more.My Mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss” Emily - age 8

“I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones.” Lauren - age 4

And my favorite one of the bunch:

"When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.” Karen - age 7


Hope you all have a truly lovely Valentine's Day! :)

I don't know why, but the last one reminds me of Lady and the Tramp.

Kids seriously say the cutest and most ridiculous things. Running a day camp makes for some crazy quotes, I'll tell you.

I love these! But my all-time favorite one is "Tell your wife that she looks pretty even if she looks like a truck!" -- Ricky, age 10.
