Valentine's inspiration

What to make for Valentine's? Well it's not really a big holiday is it? or so I thought. During dinner last night with members of the parent assoc of my little girls school, I asked some parents if they marked it, or if they let it go by without a second's thought.

I was surprised that  everyone I asked did indeed mark it. The general theme was: night off from cooking, and take away dinner for two at home. Going out for dinner was a big no no, that was left to the young love couples! who could bear the throng and the forced romantic atmosphere. Even though babysitters are non existent for many of us parents with special needs kids a night in was preferred.

I think it's great that these couples who have been together many many years still make the time for  this day and maybe this year I might even do something similar... if I remember :)


  1. I've got a card for himself to slip into his suitcase and open while he is away during the week. We never do a lot but it is another opportunity to appreciate each other.

  2. Oh my goodness you're the cutest girl ever! Nope, we don't celebrate. Maybe we get each other a little chocolate (not a whole box...just a bite!), but it's a normal old day for us.
