Valentine

‘Valentine’s Day is living out of a laundry basket. It’s no cuddly bears, late dinner, and wondering, ‘Who left the milk on the counter?’: Woman shares candid reality of Valentine’s Day as a mom and wife, ‘There’s no place I’d rather be’

“He’d get home late from work with jewelry and a stuffed teddy bear. We’d spend hours getting dressed at our parents’ homes and act like we just ‘threw something on.’ We’d eat at a nice restaurant. It was cute. Today, he’ll work 9 hours, I’ll work 12. It’s a series of crazy, chaotic moments. It’s not eating dinner until 7 p.m. No cuddly bears or shiny jewelry. It’s living out of a laundry basket for days, and figuring out who’s going to the birthday party.”

‘Our waitress says, ‘Your bill is already covered.’ Who would pay for a family with a whining baby? She points to a couple inches away.’: Mom ‘astounded’ by strangers’ Valentine’s Day act of kindness, ‘Thank you for restoring my faith in humanity’

“This was our first Valentine’s Day as a family. Our 10-month-old instantly starts whining. He begins throwing rice everywhere. Sitting next to us is a young couple. They look so in love and my anxiety quickly sets in. I sense a meltdown coming on. The last thing I want to do is ruin this nice couple’s dinner.”

‘I walked into his house. When I saw the bags from Victoria’s Secret, I knew what he had in store. It was Valentine’s Day, and it’s pretty obvious what a grown man had on his mind.’

“I gave him the coy smile, in an attempt to be sexy. I probably tried to wink at him, and did my best to slither over to the bed. One long stride in front of the other, knocking my hips from left to right, hoping to look like Marilyn Monroe but most likely – didn’t. He slowly sat down next to me.”
