I know I’m a bit early on this, but I just had some thoughts.
(1) Ben and I don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day. Despite our love for going out to eat, Valentine’s Day is a bit of an amateur night as far as reservations, babysitters, etc. are concerned. This year it’s on a Friday, so, disaster. Nevertheless, we’re about due for an evening out at a new restaurant, and I’m thinking about going out to dinner maybe the weekend after. That doesn’t count, does it?
(2) Ben and I have jokingly referred to it as Valentime’s Day for some years now. Elena is straight-up and unironically referring to it as Valentime’s Day. It’s hilarious.
Yes, it’s this hilarious.
(3) Elena is getting me a secret Valentine’s Day present. Also I believe Ben will be getting Elena something too. So I really win out here, in that I get to just sit back and eat candy.
(4) Except for the part where we have to buy candy for all her school friends. I think we might get oranges. Sportacus would approve.
