Valentine’s Day

Then:

– Roses (I used to get her one for each valentine’s day we had celebrated together)

– Candlelight

– Dinner reservations

– Exchange of thoughtful, romantic gifts

– Little black dress

– Spending the day holding hands, looking into each other’s eyes, and generally being the vomit-producing mushy gushy couple

Now:

– Sweat pants

– Pink pancakes and heart shaped grill cheese

– Walk to the playground holding the sticky hand of a 3-year-old

– The only gift exchange is the purchase of a new minivan for the family

– Laundry, dishes, giving the dog a bath

– Baby giggles, “I wub you mommy”,  and stealing kisses from my wife as she makes another bottle.  And I thought I was happy then 🙂
