All You Need is Love

Well it's that time of year. Valentine's Day.  On Thursday night we put stickers and glue and chicken nugget crumbs (sorry about that, friends) on 19 valentine's for my 4 yr old's class.  Big Kiss wanted to give cereal bars to his friends: Chocolate chip to the boys and Pink [nutrigrain] to the girls.  We taped them on top of the flimsy Scooby Doo fold up cards and off we went. 

New rule? Apparently you don't write "who" on the card anymore? Just sign the "from." I'm cornfused by this - but I followed the rules.  I'm sure the kids had a grand time and the sugar high will last for days.

As for the grown ups, I'm personally not a fan of grand gestures from a partner - just because it's Valentine's Day.

Alas, things I've shared with my husband over the years:

Don't waste your money on roses, that have tripled in price just for the occasion...a $7.99 clump of daisies from the grocery store says so much more to me...especially if it's on a random Tuesday afternoon.

Don't put off the gift buying til the last minute when you're standing in CVS with the other slackers and have to fight over the one remaining decent card...Leave me a love note before work some morning.

Don't give me "love coupons." Ever.

Do? Love me - all of me - even when I nag or scowl or laugh so hard I'm snorting.  Every day. Or, at least every other day ;)

For you? Any haters of this "Holiday?"  If you're married, single, have kids or don't. Find someone you love this Valentine's day. When I was in my early 20's and unattached, I'd call my best friend on VD and we'd share giggles and drinks and just make it a day to love our selves.

And since my family is heading out of town this weekend, that's exactly what I'm doing this year! See you soon, A!

*I had to edit because my husband broke the rules and actually sent me flowers. At work. Roses, even. And while I said "don't bother?" He went all out and I'm pretty impressed.

Let me explain about the new school rule. You don't put names on the cards so that the little SA that picked on all the other kids in the class gets cards too even though the little AH doesn't deserve to get any. Sorry this pisses me off to no end. So essentially you are giving out cards but there can't be any feelings involved. Sort of takes away from the whole valentine concept doesn't it.

I brought home flowers.

Used to have a standing date with my best girl friend on Valentines Day. Beers and movies. We had a great time. But I'm with you - no big gestures on Valentines Day...I would much rather it on a day that isn't dictated by Hallmark.

Hi dammit.

So this: Do? Love me - all of me - even when I nag or scowl or laugh so hard I'm snorting. Every day. Or, at least every other day ;)

I want. I love that. Lots.

In my sons daycare class we had to write "to my friend" on each card. I didn't even do that. I just wrote who it was from.
