A Valentine's Surprise

This is the loot I received for Valentine's Day from my 9 year old boy.  Being a single mom I never expected anything for Valentine's at all.  I was certainly taken aback when he came downstairs struggling to carry this all in his arms.  And yes, those are Lindor chocolates in that heart and yes that is a Lindor Rose.  Also included were 2 stuffed animals, my favorite easter chocolates, my chocolate covered cherries and one singing pug card.  He went completely overboard.  I have no idea what possessed him to do so.  I honestly give him one small heart chocolate every Valentine's.  We celebrate love and togetherness but not usually through the commercial side of things.  It is adorable though.  Apparently Grampa took him to the store and my son refused to let him pay and refused to put anything back.  At the cash when the giant total came up on screen Grampa suggested that maybe mom doesn't need so much.  "Grampa" said my son.  " I don't think you understand how much I love my mom".  Grampa said the cashier almost cried.  My heart certainly melted. 


Did anyone else get an unexpected surprise or gesture this morning?  I would love to hear it!  Or just tell me how you plan to spend your day!
