Earlier this week, I found myself frantically scrambling through the aisles of Burlington Coat Factory looking for the perfect red or pink outfits for the girls. After a long search, we finally came across 3 cute Minnie Mouse shirts. They were $5.99 each, making them even cuter. I love a good deal.
Valentine's Day isn't my favorite holiday, but the girls love it. Even though we don't go crazy, we also don't want our kids to have FOMO. I didn't want to be that mom who forgot to send her kids to school without a little something for their friends. So, on Monday evening, I convinced Frank to stop at Dollar Tree to pick up a few packs of Valentine's cards.
When I got home from work, all of the Fun Dip valentines were thrown across the dining room table. The girls were counting and recounting, making sure they had enough for all of their classmates. It was adorable, especially since I didn't have manage this process. As we stood back and watched our beautiful children, my husband mumbled that he'd spent $60 at Dollar Tree and I almost hit the roof. I purposely suggested Dollar Tree because EVERYTHING COSTS A DOLLAR. "Frank, what the hell did you buy?", "Ah..I really don't know. It just kind of happened." Next year, I will be shopping for the Valentine cards or I'll just have the girls make them on their own, which they love to do.
We get Valentine's cards every year, from the girls...a lotof them. We cherish them. I swear, I have them all. Well maybe most...or it might be some...I mean...I have a few of them OK!!! I've got 3 girls, who love drawing any and everything. I CANT KEEP THEM ALL!
Valentine's Day has become all about the girls and less about my husband and I. They get the tasty chocolates and cute teddy bears, which is totally cool. You see, I've never really been that chick and it's been a while since we've been that couple.
I love my husband no just on February 14th but everyday. He knows me well and is very in tune with my love language. He doesn't buy me roses. I don't have a green thumb, so they'd die quickly and I'd be pissed that he wasted the money. He doesn't buy me chocolate because he knows that I don't need no damn chocolate. I'd be mad because the temptation would knock me right off track. He knows that all I need is an empty sink, folded laundry, a clean house, the kids tucked in bed by 8:30 and I'm dropping the drawers. LOL. I love my man and I tell him often. I know I'm late...you know what I'm not, because Valentine's Day may not be today but we should celebrate love on everyday even when we get on each other's nerves. So to all my peeps, Happy Belated Valentine's Day.
