Whoa. Way too much time between posts. Must try to remedy that situation starting...now.
Hey! I wanted to talk to you about holidays and who's in charge of planning. In my experience, the role of holiday cruise director usually falls under the job description of Mom, but at some point over the years the Engineer took over Valentine's Day, and it's pretty great. There are usually flowers involved, for me and the girls. (Attention dads: if you give your daughter flowers on Valentine's Day, she will feel loved and special and remember your thoughtfulness forever. Learned this tip from my own dad who probably doesn't remember he once sent me flowers at BYU on Valentine's Day, but I do. Hi Dad!)
There is also chocolate for everyone--this year giant Hershey kisses for the kids, something a little more grown up for me--and maybe a surprise or two. Like paper hearts everywhere! It doesn't have to cost a lot or be elaborate to make a big impact. As a mom (and blogger) I always try to remember that. Simple is just fine, and over-the-top is generally overrated. (Do you agree? Is this easier for guys, do you think?)
Anyway, that's our family Valentine's Day. What do you think? Is dad in charge of any holidays at your house? As a mom, would you be cool with a holiday dad's way? Love to hear your thoughts.
