I've never been a huge fan of Valentine's day, to be honest. But today, I'm trying to forget about all the reasons I *don't* like the 'holiday' and instead focus on the reasons my babes *do* love the day. The boys are all about "Valentime's Day" - from what I can tell, they interpret it to be a day full of extra love, some crafting, fun mail, and sweets. I think my mother is responsible for this. In addition to the singing Hallmark cards she sends (and my kids LOVE), I know she's been slipping them candy hearts when I'm not around too. (Hey Mom! Calvin's old enough to tell now! Gotcha!)
But today doubles as a super fabulously SNOWy day. A papa-stays-home-from work day. A play in the snow, craft inside, eat yummy food, cozy on the couch watching the blizzard day. I couldn't be happier about this kind of a valentine's day.
Happy Valentime's Day!
