Happy Valentine’s Day!
I know that V-day was yesterday, but believe me, the fact that I am getting this post up today is a miracle. Cold season has hit us hard around here. Really hard. Ben has been sick. I’ve been sick. Christopher has been sick. Some how, my hub’s immune system has held out and he is still healthy. (Knock on wood.) But happily, we were all healthy enough yesterday to have a pretty good Valentine’s day. And the hubs and I are going out tonight to celebrate without kiddos. (Hooray!) Are you doing that too?
Since I’ve had oh so much extra time on my hands lately, Ben had to hand out store-bought valentine’s this year to his classmates. And I was totally okay with that. Even happy about it. They were cute little robot cards that I had picked up at Pottery Barn Kids a few weeks ago. Perfect for a little boy, right?
He was so excited about them. And even more excited about the chocolate hearts that I decided to attached to each one of them. And when I was busy trying to get Christopher and I dressed yesterday morning, he decided to eat as many chocolates as he could. Whoops.
Ben also decided to leave me a cute little Valentine’s Day surprise in his room. Heart stickers applied around the base of his lamp. I just had to smile and laugh. It was one of those moments that is both adorable, and at the same time you are praying to God that you will be able to clean it up…
My mom got the boys really cute Valentine’s day cards. (She always manages to find the best cards!) And I think the one she got for Christopher may be the cutest Valentine’s Day card I have ever seen. So I had to share. It’s a pop-up card. And after all of Ben’s shenanigans lately, it has been placed safely up on a shelf, far, far out of reach of toddler curiosity.
The hubs and I are exchanging cards tonight, but he brought me home a beautiful blush pink rose yesterday. It was perfect. And absolutely made me smile.
Speaking of making me smile, Christopher hit the 15 week old mark yesterday. I’ve been so bad lately about pulling out my dSLR camera. But I managed to capture this cute shot of him on my phone (for Instagram), dressed all cute for the day in a top that his aunt and uncle got him for Christmas.
My sweet little Valentine, already melting my heart.
So tell me, how was your Valentine’s day? For those of you with kiddos, did you send them off with homemade Valentines to hand out? Or did you go with the store-bought variety like I did? I don’t know about you, but I totally found myself rolling my eyes at the cuteness of the handmade Valentines that Ben brought home. There are a lot of moms that have way more time than I do right now! I don’t know, maybe next year. Or maybe a few more years down the road… Maybe.
Anyway, Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone! And have a wonderful weekend.
