We celebrate most holidays in our house in full costume! I love making the kids feel a bit festive. I waited a bit longer than most years to find shirts for Valentine's Day...but I think Bruiser's was a winner! (And it's even cuter when Sassy walks around quoting it!)
Our Valentine's Day was a bit of a bust. Bruiser spent the morning home with me, as I was recovering from a nasty case of strep throat (that one of my darling students so nicely shared with me!). I had felt lousy all weekend (actually since the Thursday before) and decided I needed to visit the walk-in bright and early Monday morning. They ran the strep test and the doctor didn't even need to examine me...it was immediately positive for those evil germs. Strangely, I had no fever and my throat wasn't horrible...but I sure felt rotten! But the meds worked their magic and I quickly bounced back. I probably would have made myself go to school on Valentine's Day but Daddy insisted I stay home and I was glad he did!
Daddy worked late on Valentine's Day...which is normal...and brought home take-out and flowers. The kids were relatively calm (ha!) and I rested a lot. Daddy and I heading out to dinner and a movie tonight to make up for the "ruined" holiday!
