It may be Valentine’s Day but it’s just another school night for parents. They still have to make sure homework is done, backpacks are loaded up and kids are in bed on time. They also have to be up bright and early the next day to get kids off to school. So I am wondering if parents will try to celebrate Valentine’s Day on the actual day or just wait until the weekend.
How will you celebrate Valentine’s Day since it falls on a school night? Will you still try to go out or just try to do something at home? Will you celebrate on Friday or Saturday instead?
Do you celebrate as a family or just as a husband or wife?
We did our family celebration last Saturday since it would be hard to give gifts on a school morning. I made a nice breakfast and the kids opened some presents. Walsh got a Lord of the Rings Lego set, Lilina got some My Little Pony stuff and Rose got some clothes. (She’s a big girl now.)
I have a few chocolates to give them tomorrow, and I picked up some cupcakes for desert for tomorrow night’s dinner. (I made cupcakes on Sunday but they are all gone now.)
Michael and I are celebrating this weekend. We are going to see Louis CK perform. I did get Michael a present and I am trying to decide about giving it to him on Valentine’s Day or when we go out.
So what’s your plan? Does Valentine’s Day falling on a school night hurt your ability to go out or stay up late?
