Valentines Day

If I can't have my sweetheart home at least I still have the kids. They love Valentines - Kaitlyn because she likes to give people stuff (she asked me every 5 min how soon we were going to go deliver stuff to grandma) and Ty because he gets presents and CANDY.

I stayed up late on a whim making a few extra Valentines decorations to surprise the kids with. They noticed them. Ty even said "ooooo pretty!" So it was worth it.

We had pink heart-shaped waffles and strawberry milk with heart marshmallows for breakfast. That's all it takes to make the kids happy for the day.

Then they got dressed in their new Valentines stuff (and were proud enough of it they let me take photos) and spent the day with my parents. It was only supposed to be a quick trip to deliver cards but since we didn't have anything else going on I stayed over there to work on Tyler's new quilt. Then the kids stayed with Dad while Mom and I went to a movie.

This Girl

I had a Mommy Moment the other night. 3AM and Tyler is whimpering in his sleep. I think he was just cold because covering him with a blanket did the trick. But then I couldn't get back to sleep myself. So I was laying there in bed, wide awake and got to thinking about how fast the kids are growing up. It wasn't that long ago my Kate was a teeny tiny bundle of blankets. Now look at her. Growing up way too fast. I used to spend hours just holding her and now Miss Wiggles doesn't spend all that much time in my arms.
Know what I did after that? I went and climbed into bed with her for some cuddle time. Because she won't be this size forever either. Better make the most of it while I can.
