My Valentines preparations went like this:
Answer the door and receive delivery of a valentine note for one of my children.
Realize that Valentine’s day is, in fact, tomorrow.
Remember that, unlike the rest of us who try to ignore it, for kids in grade school this holiday is Very Important.
Run to grocery store to buy candy in bulk.
Print pictures of Nintendo characters off of the internet.
Have kids cut out pictures and tape candy to the back.
Hope that this will not go down in memory as the worst Valentines day ever. I can never predict which unprepared moment will be the one that lives in infamy. I get away with lots, but I am reminded every year of the one time I cooked chicken for Thanksgiving instead of turkey.
