This will not be a mushy post. Valentine’s Day was definitely cooler as a kid. I mean I am not anti-Valentine’s by any means. Rob and I exchange cards and make a nice dinner at home, but I just think it’s silly that people feel obligated to do the whole flower/chocolate/jewelry/god awful stuffed animal thing just because Cupid said so. Was it Cupid? I don’t know.
Anyway, as a kid, you got to make Valentine’s boxes! Of course mine always sucked, but it was still so fun. Making cards for your entire class and carefully selecting the conversation hearts so no one got the wrong idea… or someone got the right idea. A few years back my sisters, stepdaughter and I decided what the hell, we can still make boxes! So we did. The only problem was no one put any Valentine’s cards in them. Minor detail.
Jack clearly doesn’t understand that today is a holiday about love. If he did, he wouldn’t have rolled in dog poop. Why must they do this? I think he has a bit of a poop obsession lately. I caught him with a piece in his mouth today (he dropped it), and then he came inside later with it all over his neck. Hello, I am not feeling the love, Jack! Maybe I can sweet talk Rob into giving him a bath. You know, “Sweetie, since it’s Valentine’s Day….”
However you celebrate or don’t celebrate today, at least eat some chocolate. You do have an excuse after all!
