Yesterday we had a nice, albeit low key, Valentine's Day. After our weekend adventure Scott and I struck an agreement for a minimalist holiday this year. I gave him a pound of personalized M&M's and made a nice family dinner. He surprised me with a bouquet of flowers and did the dishes. At this stage in our relationship, sometimes true romance is expressed through housework and division of family chores.
Robby had a
great day at school. He ended up exchanging emoji pillows with a friend
"who happens to be a girl but please don't think that she is my
girlfriend." It was actually cute because both friends
wanted to buy a gift for each other and ended up choosing the exact
same. I topped off the school day by surprising his class with milkshakes, elevating
him to hero.
Timmy seemed to enjoy the excitement of the holiday, but he loves most things. I brought him some new Thomas the Train
books so he spent the majority of the day hugging them and paging
through the pictures. He still won't sit down to listen to me read, but
he no longer tries to chew on the books so we are considering that
I hope that everybody had a wonderful Valentine's Day, filled with whatever level of celebration you desired.
