Simple Ways to Create a Valentine’s Day
Your Sweetheart & Kids Will Love
Valentine’s Day has definitely changed for me post baby-making. When once we were doing delightful and delicious Valentine’s excursions, each year with more sizzle and romance than the last, now we are squeezing this celebration of love in the middle of a busy week loaded with kid stuff and obligations.
Since baby was born, we’ve tweaked our Valentine’s Day festivities to include the little man so he can feel the gratitude and love we share as a family. What we’ve found is a holiday that is richer in spirit and deeper in meaning.
Here are my favorite ways to keep Valentine’s Day simple – spicy for daddy and sweet for kids.
1. Set the stage: When we were kids, we would wake up to our kitchen table filled with candy and cards and red and pink balloons everywhere. It was such a loving treat to receive from our parents and started the day so sweetly. This is something you can do for everyone in the family.
