This morning I was woken up at 6am by my 4 year old, balancing a tray of chocolates in one hand and a cup of coffee in the other, while singing “Happy Valentine’s Day to You!” as loud as she could, in the tune of happy birthday, of course.
I must admit that Valentine’s Day has not been on my radar for the last decade or so…my husband is not the chocolate and flowers type and i’m more the drink champagne with the girls type.
But this morning was different. Our four year old made us all wear red and pink (quite entertaining trying to find either red or pink in mine or my husband’s wardrobe) and she stood behind her dad giving clear but definitive directions while he carefully poured batter into the pan to make heart shaped (well, kind of blob shaped) pancakes. Kinda fun…
Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone out there…today is the only day of the year where eating chocolate out of heart shaped cardboard boxes from the drugstore is perfectly acceptable.
