Love, Candy, Stuffed Animals, Flowers, Cards, Hearts, Lace...
What do you think of when you hear that Valentines Day is coming? I used to think it was dumb. I mean, why do we need a special day to celebrate love? Shouldn't we be doing this every day? You know my type, or maybe you are my type.
Now, I have toddlers, 2 of them.. well, Crackers doesn't "toddle" per say, but he's 13 months old, so I guess he qualifies in that category. Toddlers make all the difference in my feelings about the gushy mushy love holiday. See, I stay home all day with my 2 boys, who I love dearly. I feel incredibly blessed to be able to stay home with them.
My husband works 12 hours a day 3-4 days a week. Oh, and we only have 1 car, so if we're going to leave the house at all, I have to get the boys up at 4:30 in the morning.. so we don't get out of the house much on days that Randy works.. and days he's off, well.. they're filled with errands.
I'm not complaining, I love this life. But I understand now why I need a love holiday. I need a reason to celebrate the mushy gushy love for my husband. And I need him to celebrate me.
What about you? What are your feelings about Valentine's Day?
