When a day starts with chocolate, I will even get up early!!!
Isabella and Anastasia had a party at their two-day-a-week school. I was so proud of myself. We have tons and tons of socks with all kinds of flowers, kitties, owls, etc. that are thrown with reckless abandon in a big basket. I actually managed to find matching Valentine socks for each kid. Even I wore red socks. I felt a real sense of accomplishment (is that pathetic?).
Did someone say "icing"?
Francesca hung out at the food table during the whole party.
Some of the kids were scared of Francesca because of how she looks. But the more I talked to the kids and the more questions they asked, after a while, she became just one of the gang. I really think that people, me included, don't really know how to act with someone who looks or acts different. Once we can all learn about the person and their differences, it doesn't seem like such a big deal anymore.
My husband was a real hero today because he took us to my favorite restaurant, Red Lobster.
The girls got a "Shirley Temple".
What a guy, balancing a kid and paying the bill at the same time.
Hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day! I would love to hear about how you all celebrated!
