You see, before having kids, Valentine’s Day was about having a fancy dinner and showering gifts to that special someone. I would make reservations at a restaurant where it would be super crowded with all the lovebirds around. Now with two toddlers in the mix, Valentine’s Day does not necessarily fall on February 14. It is celebrated when we are able to get some adult time away from the kids..
This year, we actually had Valentine’s Day off together. Since we seldom have days off together, we try to schedule appointments and other important errands on those days so that I can help the Wifey with tasks that need to get done.
Today was no exception.
We started the morning dropping off the girls to preschool where they had their own Valentine’s party. Then it was off to get our ultrasound of baby #3. After that, we went over and added some items to our baby shower gift registry. A quick lunch at Lee’s Sandwich then we headed off to get our taxes done.
Yep. A pretty romantic errand-filled day for us, eh?
When it comes to organization, my wife is probably the best. She usually has days planned 2-3 months in advanced. Well, her mommy-brain got the best of her and we had a little scheduling misstep. We thought our friend’s wedding was on Saturday and booked a babysitter to come over and watch the girls so we can attend the wedding. It turns out that the wedding was on Sunday!
Anyways, as it turned out, it was probably not the worse thing to happen. I figured we can still have the sitter come over and I can take the Wifey out to a nice dinner. It was set, dinner was booked, and planned to get some ice cream for dessert!
We’re paintin’ the town red Tonight!
Then we grabbed some dessert at Milk.
If Valentine’s Day means a day full of love and hearts, then I guess everyday is Valentine’s Day for me because I am lucky enough to be getting both love and hearts from my wife and daughters on a daily basis.
My first Valentine Card from my 3 year-old! I hope they never stop coming in.
…we also made it to the wedding on Sunday!!!
Happy Valentine’s Day to you all!!
