Valentine’s Day last year, hubs and I began a tradition we will honor forevermore.
“Why on earth?!” you ask.
Truth? I don’t have a good explanation.
Perhaps we were overcompensating for bringing a new baby into our home only weeks beforehand last year. Maybe being parents for the third time saps us of the energy to maintain our former vigilance.
Who knows? But our kids are stoked. And for one day a year, we’re The Coolest Parents Ever.
Here is a taste of our gifts to our children this year…
…for Little Mermaid #1 (age 9) …for Little Mermaid #2 (age 4) …for Little Mermaid #3 (age 1)
Yep – we are going to set the goodies out on the Kitchen table and call them in for their Valentines and surprises. Then we will sit back, watch and smile. :)
The longer we do this Parenting thing, the more we realize “Good Parenting” is whatever works best for your family.
Wishing you a very Happy Valentine’s Day! We hope you enjoy the traditions you and yours love most. :)
What are some of your favorite traditions for this time of year?
