Miss C and Miss A’s hands, February 2005
(Because lately it’s nearly impossible to take a peaceful photo of them together.)
I keep having fantasies of these wonderful holiday traditions that are very Martha Stewart, but then I run out of time and energy. I had big plans to cut out pink paper hearts last night and leave a little trail to the den early this morning but it was late and I was tired. I gave the girls hilarious sucker pops with big plastic lips that may not be Martha-esque, but are so funny.
The girls also got new heart tights to wear to school today. Miss A’s tights have silver glittery thread hearts and Miss C’s do not so there was an uncomfortable moment of “her tights are cuter than mine!” Women. Petty jealousy rears its ugly head so young.
Do you have any traditions you remember from childhood? My mother always gave us a small Russell Stover red heart box filled with chocolates. My favorites were, and still are, the caramel filled ones and I still remember tearing open the cheery red cellophane.
Hubby and I ate lunch together since we’ve got a hot date tonight with a blonde and a brunette. We were going to go to our favorite little Italian spot but it’s closed for lunch so instead we went to a burger and beer type place, where I ended up ordering the shrimp etoufee on special. Besides, we needed a hearty lunch so we have enough energy to cope with Miss Wired on Sugar I and Miss Wired on Sugar II Electric Boogaloo tonight at the pizza place.
Happy Valentine’s Day to you and you and you! You look fabulous, by the way. Is that a new shirt?
