Get ready to hear about the most thrilling Valentine’s Day ever! Monday night I got home from work to find some lovely treats from our nanny and some very happy valentines.
The girls were eager to go through the cards they received from school. They got to enjoy a chocolate and a sucker (I’m a softy!).
But this girl!
Our Valentine’s Day started early. Ashlyn woke me up at 4:45 am. She had been up all night coughing and none of us got any sleep. Then Maddie got up around 5:30 am and both girls had runny noses and a cough. I made them a Valentine’s Day smoothie (banana + strawberry + kale + cherry juice) and added some First Defense immune support.
We opened some goodies that my MIL sent (so sweet) which perked them up a bit, but for most of the morning they were miserable. My kids are so crabby when they are sick!
By 9:00 am I was spent. Coincidentally, Matt texted me that he had a client cancellation and asked if I wanted him to come home for a bit so I could take a run. As if I even needed to answer, right? I flew out the door as soon as he arrived and went for a 6 mile run. It was exactly what I needed. It changed my whole mood.
So did this 🙂
After my run I showered and played with the girls a bit more before their nap. They were feeling and acting much better by the afternoon.
I managed to make meatballs and bake a spaghetti squash for dinner which was about as romantic as I got. We settled in for Netflix and wine later that evening, which was pretty perfect. So was this card…
Our Valentine’s Day has changed quite a bit now that we have children, but honestly, I would rather stay in with wine, dinner, and a movie (and sleeping children!) then head to a crowded restaurant.
