Let me start by saying that Valentines Day is not one of my favorite holidays. It’s total Hallmark made up nonsense forced upon us so that we will go out and buy a bunch of crap that we don’t need in order to not look like a total loser to our significant other who has also been brainwashed to go out and buy a bunch of unneeded crap.
Although I do like the chocolate. But that is beside the point.
Despite my jaded view of February 14th, I do remember being a kid and loving it. Decorating the shoe box, addressing cards, receiving valentines, eating red lollipops. Ah, the memories.
Sam’s a bit young to get involved in Valentines Day, but Molly is just the right age. She had a count down going at the beginning of the month. She was excited. And who am I to squash my child’s excitement with a cold dose of reality. So let cupid loose. Let’s get this party started!
More treats at home. I had big helium balloons for the kids, but I accidently popped one when I was bringing it in the house. Therefore neither one got a balloon because, even though I am new to the mother-of-two-kids thing, I already know that you can’t give to one without giving to the other.
Sam loved his cards. Because there were three. And he could line them up (see this post).
