Another Valentine's Day has come and gone. If you missed my brother's hysterical post from yesterday check it out here. Really funny stuff.
Back at our own homestead, we spent a lot of the day apart. Joe took Cameron and Brandon to their weekly Futsal workout while Jerame and Evan and I stayed home and cleaned up pet accidents all day. More accurately: Jerame and Evan were home with me, but they didn't so much help clean up the accidents as watch me do it. Although, I will give Jerame credit for throwing away a baby sock that Gus tried to eat and then threw up. Yum.
We also had a dog who was sick in the other way but I couldn't figure out which one was leaving the perfect rings of poop around the house (seriously, they looked like crop circles) so finally I threw all three nasty animals out into the yard. By the time Joe got home I was almost in tears and feeling very un-Valentiney. It took dinner out at Buffalo Wild Wings and almost a whole pound of Red Vines to bring me back to my normal (somewhat) cheerful self.
Between biohazard cleanup, I made some goody bags for the boys:
And some cute cupcakes that made Cameron and Jerame very happy:
Here's Brandon with the funny card box we made for his class party:
And Evan munching on his Valentine treat: Strawberry marshmallows. For a minute I thought about how these might come out in the diaper, but by that time I had had enough of poop so I just let him eat them and hoped for the best.
Joe and I don't do much for each other for Valentine's Day (we show our love all year long - bum chicka wa wa!) but he was very smart to include the above-mentioned Red Vines along with my card. Especially when he came home to a blubbering, mess of a wife who desperately needed the delicate mix of high fructose corn syrup and red dye #40 to make it through the day.
