Valentine’s Day is so much different these days:
Remember back in the pre-kid days? It was like Valentine’s Day everyday. Celebrating Valentine’s Day back then was redundant. We were just showing off.
I used to
hope for expect flowers and chocolates and romantic surprises and baubles that sparkled.
Now all I hope for is that I can eat a chocolate or two before my kids descend upon them like rabid vultures. They take bites out of each one or poke their fingers into the bottoms to see what they all are and then put the coconut ones back.
All I really want for Valentine’s Day is an unscathed piece of chocolate.
And not only do I have to fight for my chocolate freedom from my children, but the entire holiday has become focused on them.
What heart-shaped box of chocolates should I get my kids this year? What Valentine’s Day crafts can I do with my kids this year? How can I make Valentine’s Day special for my kids this year?
Is it like this in your house too?
Screw the kids. Let’s take Valentine’s Day back.
After all, couples who are parents need a day to focus just on each other.
Parents deserve to relax and have a nice dinner without the kids and have uninterrupted conversations too. We deserve to reconnect. To celebrate and rekindle the whole reason we got into this mess in the first place.
It is such a wonderful experience to go into a loud restaurant and have this conversation:
I don’t want much. I don’t even require anything that sparkles. I just want to do something for US.
So this year, we’re revising our annual tradition of spicy Indian food and champagne at home. No kids allowed. Sure, we have to wait until they go to sleep, but then we can make the food as spicy as we want. Because that’s what matters.
Spicy food. Us. What WE want. For just one holiday.
How about something that sparkles?
