I want to start out by letting you know I am very pro-Valentine’s Day. I love pink, and hearts, and chocolate, and flowers. I love any excuse to tell my loved ones how I feel about them. Even on a made up holiday. Honestly though. This year kinda sucked. By Saturday, Avery and I were going on day 3 of being sick. And Callie has been teething. So runny nose, clingy, and not sleeping very well. And since I had been sick, I didn’t have time/energy to shop for fun gifts. Thankfully I picked up a couple little things the last time I was at Target (impulse buying FTW). And I ordered some cute dolls for the girls beforehand, too. And, yes. I cleaned up my sick, snotty kids and made them take pictures. Jeremy was great and braved the insane cold temperatures and bought me my favorite food. What can I say? He loves me. Avery and I spent the afternoon making valentines. I cut out some hearts and she glued them together, put on some stickers and colored them. She loves arts and crafts. And it keeps her busy/not bored for a long time. Win-win! That night we had our favorite Valentine’s Day dinner. Heart-shaped pizza! And the evening just deteriorated after that. Both girls put up a fight going to bed. Avery eventually went to sleep. But it took Callie until almost 1:30 am. So much screaming. It was a pretty up and down Valentine’s Day. I’m just glad we all survived.
