Man, it is hard to get back into the swing of things after a long weekend, no?
My parents are gone, after a lovely visit, Brian is back at work. It is just Joseph, me, and a bunch of dirty laundry sitting around.
We really had a great weekend together!
Brian and I have a tradition where he gets me flowers the day after Valentine’s Day. They are a lot cheaper, and then he can get me even nicer ones!
Well, my big Valentine broke our tradition and had these waiting for me on Valentine’s Day morning.
It was his turn to get up with Joseph, and so he had made a quick run out to the store. Imagine what those Albertsons employees thought when they saw a man with his baby (in pajamas) buying flowers and a card on Valentine’s Day MORNING!
We didn’t get Joseph anything for the big day- I kind of figured that this was the last holiday that we could get away with no gifts! We did let him have a few M&Ms on what Brian calls the “candy train.” Essentially, Brian sings some song about “Here Comes the Candy Train…” and pulls the cart around with candy onboard. Joseph follows, eating. Brian had pooped out by the time I got out my camera. Joseph was happy to have finally “caught” the train.
Yes, you’re my Valentine too, Brian.
My mom and I did quite a bit of shopping together, and Joseph was in HOG HEAVEN having Dada and Grandpa to himself! At one point, when I put Joseph down for a nap, I asked, “Did you have fun with Grandpa?” and he signed “More, more, more!!”
This one was not so good of Brian, so I cut him out.
The night after Valentine’s Day, my lover and I ditched Joseph with my Mom and Dad and went out to a movie, Slumdog Millionaire, and a Jamba Juice. It was so nice just to drive out to the theater and back with no whining coming from the carseat!
Thank you, Mom, Dad, and Brian for a wonderful Valentine’s Day / President’s Day weekend.
Now, who wants to help me with this laundry?
