The Fourteen Days of Valentines

It's that time of year again. It is the 14 Days of Valentines. Here is your chance to strengthen you marriage, show your kids how to be romantic, and smother your man with sentimental sweet love.

Today my Darling Husband opened his truck to find a cute Valentines Day gift bag with......a Sarah Boynton book. For those of you not in the know, Sarah Boynton is the favorite author darling daughter. It is a little kid's book. But before you think I lost a few more brain cells: DH reads to DD every night. Every night she picks a favorite Sarah Boynton book: Oh My-O-My-O Dinosaurs, Dogs, Barnyard Dance.... she has the whole collection. Tonight, and many nights after that, she will ask DH to read to her this new book called About Love. Every night DH reads the book, he will think about me.

Oh, yes, I am very sneaky.

Tomorrow will be a sweet valentine card with the my side of the story about how he kissed me on our second date. (This is a story he will not let me live down, a story that will remain legend in our family.) I was so shocked that I did not kiss him back. He didn't kiss me again for SIX MONTHS and then asked permission before he planted one on me. (I did kiss back that time.) That kiss was tres romantique.

Day three happens to be DS#1's fourteenth birthday. DH will discreetly recieve a gift cert for two movie tickets and a box of his favorite movie candy. Datenight will have to wait for another time as we focus on our first born.

Day four will be 4 8x10 b&w photos in black frames, a head shot of each of our kids. I have to buy AA batteries today so I can take the pics this afternoon and get them to Costco for developing. These will go into his office with a second copy for me to hang at home. I hope the kids cooperate.

You'll have to wait for the next week's ideas when I post again. Pick some simple ideas and try it yourself. It's great marriage therapy (and don't we all need marriage therapy?)
