Here’s what works: my 4-year old asking me to be his Valentine. There probably aren’t too many more years when this will happen, so I’ll eat it up with a spoon. Someday, I would love to have a Valentine a little closer to my own age, but for now, I feel filled up with love for my little boy. I know that my Valentine of the future is out there somewhere, not quite sure what he’s doing, where he is, or when I’ll find him, but he’s out there! He’s going to be funny and goofy and witty and loving and strong, strong enough to deal with my special brand of crazy. Can he also be a good dresser and really good looking? Great, thanks.
Until then, I have the best little Valentine a Mama could ask for.
Hope everyone has a love-filled day.
