Happy Belated Valentines Day!

What a WONDERFUL day Valentines Day is! Ugh! Maybe for an unmarried couple who are gazing into each other eyes foreseeing a beautiful wedding and living in a house with a white picket fence, a well behaved dog and happy children playing. That's only in fairy tales. Here is how it REALLY plays out.

Saturday 2am in the morning... my 2 year old wakes up crying because he has puked all over the sheets. He has a stomach bug that he caught guessed it, DAYCARE!
3am... my 6 month old decides this is the best time to wake up and practice his babbling and get a midnight snack. How cute!
6am... Rise and Shine! my 2 year old is ready for his morning bottle and some toons.
7am... standing by the coffee machine waiting desperately for my fix!
9am...breakfast! yeah right!
9am...Lost my appetite because I changed a diaper full of you know what and then some!
10am... Oh by the way honey Happy Valentines Day!

The moral of this story is.... Valentines should be celebrated, in my opinion, on your own watch which for me is TODAY, or tomorrow, or every day, or this very moment... as I'm looking right next to me and watching my husband cuddling our 2 year old son. I think to myself... through good times and bad times, through sickness and in health, through constipation and diarrhea this man will stand by me for many many years to come... So help me God.
