Well, at least that is probably how they saw it! Smart kids, sleepy parents.
So, since they wake up pretty late on a normal day, this two hours before was really only 7:00am, so we aren't too upset about it. We woke them up, saying "Happy Valentine's Day!" over and over in the best sing-songy voice you can have with partial laryngitis, swinging them around the room in our arms. Thankfully, they were the only recipients of this little gift of love. I know my ears were hurting afterwards!
We brought them downstairs and we all had a love-ly breakfast - whole wheat waffles with lots of butter, slab bacon and heart shaped strawberries. Love on a plate!
Mike introduced them to whipped cream on their waffles and the word of the day became "keem!" (cream). Braden was so "keem" infatuated that he started putting his mouth down to the waffle instead of bringing the waffle up to his mouth.
Then, we cleaned up and watched a Blue's Clues episode, titled, "Happy Love Day." Alex was enthralled, I think she already has a crush on Joe. Or maybe Blue. Whatever it is, she loves the show already.
I think we might just decide to share the Love today and attend our little town's winter festival today - Winterfest! More on that later...
Until then, have a very, very Happy Love Day, whatever you decide to do.
