Im not usually a fan of Valentines…usually because Im married to a practical man who usually isn’t a fan of the traditional cheesy stuff, but I am and usually let myself get disappointed. And with 3 little boys romance isnt always possible. However we had a good day.
I insisted we try going out, and since leaving the baby very long is not very feasible, the three of us went out. After parent teacher conference…romantic huh? I told him it must have been a good date, I mean he got my shirt off before food arrived. Ok, so it didn’t exactly go that way.., I nursed the baby to sleep while we waited for our food so even though I ate one handed he was still and quiet.
Friday, actually Valentines Day, I celebrated with 19 Kindergartners…had a blast and enjoyed getting out without babies for a rare treat.
Friday night I made us all an easy, but nice dinner. Then we all watched a movie.
Hubby let me select my own gift at Walmart, I opted for a new blender for smoothies. I also got chocolate, in a bag not a box. But it was the good stuff. 🙂
One of my favorite Valentines activities was helping Isaac do all his stuff for school. Using Pinterest for inspiration we made his Valentines box to look like a Lego, in his favorite red! I was proud of it, he didn’t win the contest but we couldn’t compare to the elaborate pink and purple castle. We gave his teacher a brownie mix in a cute presentation, I figured she had plenty mugs and stuffed animals, who doesn’t like brownies? Once Isaac learned about Iron Man Valentines, nothing homemade would work.., bummer for a mama who loves crafts.
The boys all got a little candy and a toy. Iron Man Lego for Isaac and an Iron Man mask for James (no more sharing!)
