One day, set aside for love. The balloons, the candy, the stuffed animals- I. Don't. Get. It. Why take one day of the year to show someone that you love them? I doesn't make sense to me.
For me, it is more romantic for my husband to surprise me with a milkshake in the middle of summer, than to give me flowers on Valentine's Day. For me, I would rather cook Justin his favorite meal, just because he wants it- not because it is Valentine's Day. Do I cherish Maddie's pictures more on Valentine's Day, than I do on any other day? Of course not.
Thanks to Rachel, From the Land of Monkeys and Princesses for this awesome graphic.
Now, I off to Target. To buy gifts for Maddie's preschool teachers, because not everyone in her class feels the same way I do. I looked like the bad mommy again, because I didn't bake a loaf of home-made strawberry bread, shaped in a heart. I brought strawberry jell-o.
It's red. What more could they expect from me?
