When I was younger, I did not celebrate Valentine’s Day. I did not agree with the commercialism surrounding the holiday. I figured that if you really care about someone then you would show them everyday not just once a year. I had boyfriends who were disappointed that I did not find this holiday important.
Now, as a wife and a mother, I still feel that we should show our love all year which I do with my family. But, having kids has made me want to celebrate the holiday. I make sure my kids and my husband know how loved they are all year long, but I like to take this day to do a little extra for them. To give them something they can’t normally have. I don’t allow my kids to eat many sweets it junk food but today I allowed them to have some candy so that was a special treat for them.
I look forward to all holidays so I can “spoil” the special people in my life. I hope everyone had a great day even if they do not celebrate this holiday.
