After you have kids, your idea of Valentine’s gifts change. The romantic dinner or a beautifully decorated box of chocolates are a thing of the past. We just spent hours writing out tiny Valentine’s cards for the kid’s class and licking 30 little envelopes. It wasn’t the best use of our time and certainly not what we wanted to be doing. Yes, fine. It makes our kids happy but it tastes like sh*t.

So, if you are thinking about buying us a Valentine’s gift, here’s what NOT to get us.
We don’t need a $5 card. Yes, we know you love us and it’s fantastic and thank you. But, like we said, we just spent most of our night writing out and licking teeny, tiny cards for our kid’s entire class. So – please keep the five bucks or buy us a coffee with cream and two sugars. Make it iced. Yum!
A romantic night out
If you’re making the reservation, we’re all in, but moms think about dinner every. single. night. We don’t want to pick the restaurant and we don’t want to make the reservation. Also, we don’t want to ask the babysitter because it’s too late and she probably has plans. This is all you. If not, we’re staying home and that’s fine too.
Hint hint: We do not have the same taste. Yes, you know me better than anyone. You know I pee when I sneeze and love to watch The Bachelor in the hoodie I’ve had since college but that’s where it ends. Plus, do you know the difference between a hoop and a post? No. I’m not talking about basketball. See, that’s what I mean. I love you so much but please, I don’t have the time to return anything.
Please don’t… just kidding. You can buy us chocolates.
Ultimately, yeah, we want to celebrate, but we want to celebrate our way. We want to be able to just be comfortable and not feel like we have to plan, prepare or prep anything. We don’t want to have to live up to any expectations of what Valentine’s Day is. We want a night off from all the stuff that we have to do every day. For Valentine’s Day this year, we just want a break and maybe a lap dance. We love you.
