There are so many posts about Valentine’s Day today. Most are very black and white. HOW TO HAVE THE MOST AH~MAZING VALENTINE’S DAY WITH THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE…or
F@#k you, Valentine’s Day.
Some of them talk about how you need to love yourself on Valentine’s Day….not in a sexual way, wait, actually I’m not sure. Maybe it is.
As a mom of 3 in elementary school, romance is not my first thought. Instead, I think- crap. I have to buy chocolates and more stuffed animals or support ipad habits with gift cards or new games. I have to get cards for the class, and they need to be unique and funny. Some of my friends actually make class Valentine’s cards with witty little phrases on them…or homemade treats if you can believe it! I know. Bitches.
This year I did order some cards online. They were Valentine Madlibs. I was pretty proud of myself. But no candy. There wasn’t a spot for it and it’s a big enough battle to get my kids’ to write their own damn names on the cards, much less tape some candy to it! This has gotten me many disapproving looks from friends. Ironically my kids didn’t say one thing about not having any candy for their friends. I saw kids walking into school this morning with flowers, ribbons, fancy teacher gifts. Shit. I forgot about the teachers.
But the morning was hectic and we didn’t have any kind of a “moment.” I would love an ah~mazing Valentine’s Day…with romance and sexy bed hair. But honestly…I’m tired.
What about you?
