Celebrating Valentine's the Mom Way

Once you have kids, Valentine's Day doesn't hold the same romance it once did. This year, we celebrated as a family again. This was the first year that Pickle got flowers for his girlfriend. He let me pick them out, but he loved the selection. I'm such a bargain hunter, we managed to get this really nice bouquet for less than $11. Got the flowers at Sam's, the greenery at the nearby florist and the vase at the thrift store. Voila. Beautiful flowers that don't break the bank.
Hot Rod is making a funny face as his classmate flexes for the camera. She was so funny - she got a box of chocolates from a boy and she went nuts. It was very cute.

Little Bit stayed home from school, but was bouncing off the walls, so she went to her party. She seemed recovered Friday evening and all day Saturday. Then, Saturday night, she melted down once again. Today, she did nothing by lie on the couch. She ate maybe three saltine crackers and a part of a popsicle. Poor baby. She threw up twice today. I don't know if we rushed her recovery or what. I'm glad the kids are out of school on Monday, so she can rest some more.
video She did manage to make it to her game on Saturday and she looked/acted fine. I thought she did pretty good to be the second youngest girl on the squad.

    It may not be 'romantic' but it sure is cute! :)

    Poor Little Bit, I hope she is feeling better today :)

    Heh ... Pickle and his girlfriend...

    I haven't talked to him in a while and I need to. But I'm just pegging them both as intellectual nerds that would have SO fit in with our group way back in the day LOL
