Valentine's Day Failure

I have to admit that I'm not the most thoughtful or organized person. Valentine's Day reminded the entire family of this fact. About two p.m. I realized I hadn't made or bought Valentine's for my boys. I was making homemade oreos with pink frosting but they needed a love note. So I cut out some paper hearts, wrote a quick love you, and left them on their pillows. No big deal.
About three-thirty we were all home enjoying our cookies. 9yo comes flying up the stairs and tells 13yo, "You said nobody gave you a Valentine, well you were wrong! Go look on your bed! Hurry!" 13yo looks at me like I am his hero. My heart sinks. He runs downstairs. A few minutes later he plods back up the stairs. The look he gives me is not quite the same as earlier. "Um, thanks, Mom." I hug him and say, "I'm sorry. A paper heart isn't quite as exciting as your brother acted." He starts laughing, "Seriously, I was expecting ... something!"
We're still not sure and don't dare ask if 9yo was really that excited about his paper heart or if he was just setting his brother up. I do know that next year I will put a bit more effort into their Valentine surprise!
How did your Valentine's Day go?

  1. We ate a home cooked ribeye steak dinner. It was awesome. I think it's great that you made your kids a homemade valentine.

    1. That sounds good! All my big boys and husband had meetings or basketball so the baby and I were alone! We had fun visiting a neighbor.
