I always have been one to buy into the Valentine's Day hype. In our past 4 years of married Valentine's Days, Chuck and I have spent 2 of them with a newborn baby in arms. I usually am exhausted from the lack of sleep, and he usually is shoveling snow or de-icing our walkway and cars (we ALWAYS seem to have a snow/ice storm here in DC that weekend). We still managed to have some sort of fun dinner, and he ALWAYS gets me my Dark Chocolate collection from Godiva...he knows the way to my heart! :)
This year, while I hope that Chuck does find a way to get me out of the house on Valentine's Night (HINT HINT) even if we just go grab ice cream together, I'm SO looking forward to the date that Christian and I have together...he actually said this to me last week:
"Mommy, we're going to go to see The Princess and the Frog, just me and you"
"Yes, I'm taking you to see the movie. You can get popcorn and chocolate chip cookies for me!"
I have NO idea how he came up with this idea, but I can't wait. He's never been to the movies, and I know we won't be able to stay for the whole duration, but I am so excited that we are going to go. If any CI Mamas have tips on taking our CI kiddos to movies, I'd appreciate it!
