Happy Valentines Day to all my faithful readers, and to YOU ! Welcome if you are new to my blog. Sign up to follow me, I will promise not to disappoint you with my posts.
This Valentines Day, I have decided to be frugal. I certainly do NOT need candy and neither does my family. My hubby is allergic to flowers, so I rarely get them, but that is okay because they always die too quickly anyways, I rather have my garden full when Spring comes. I don't need balloons or jewelry, so I have been thinking, What can I do to make THIS Valentines Day Special and memorable one, without spending a ton, and by celebrating LOVE, which is what the holiday is about, right ?
I decided to celebrate by sharing TIME. Time with my family is more precious than any gems, more rich than any chocolate, gets me "higher" than any helium of any balloons, and usually, they smell better than any flowers, lol.
My hubby and I don't get a lot of time together, he works two jobs, so I don't have to work. I spend a lot of time with my children, but it usually isn't the quality time like I like to spend. We are usually rushing somewhere, or sitting on computers, or doing homework, something like that, so I decided that we could have fun while learning, and playing. And at the same time we would be spending that quality time together.
We are going to play a few board games together and read some new books we recently got. Then I am going to have my sons (ages 12 and 9) play their instruments and give me a duet. My oldest plays violin and my 9 yr. old plays viola. Then I will ask my hubby to join in on piano. We are a very musical family, except me, but I can sing, well, I THINK I can sing, lol
I am getting excited just writing about how my Valentines Day is going to be. I hope you all have a Very Happy Valentines Day too.

They learn by mirroring Mommy and Daddy with the ultimate goal being "to do it myself" and feel like an active member of the family. That's why Little Partners has created the Learning Tower: a sturdy, non-tip structure that welcomes the child to safely participate with parents, caregivers, and siblings by raising them to counter top height."
