I think I might do this! LO goes to bed at 7:30 every night so really, I wouldn't even need a babysitter for that.. lol. I know I can't leave her overnight anywhere. Both of us would freak since we EBF & co-sleep. She won't take a bottle but she drinks from those straw cups so I think she'd be okay for a couple hours. It's just me who has the separation anxiety. lol.

Not sure about gifts either.

We have been together so long that we really don't celebrate it. So sad lol. I guess we do need to get out and do something special,because it will be DS first v-day.

Haha this is our third Valentine's day together. I don't even remember what we did on the first. The second I was hugely pregnant & in pre-term labor, & this one will be DD's first.

Most likely we won't even be together on V day. He will be with his family who I think get here from Wales around that time and I will probably be at school. Most like we will forget, or I will buy myself one of those chocolate roses lol

We don't really celebrate Valentines Day. The past 4 years SO and I have ben together I have always gotten him a gift and tried to make it special, but he thinks it's just a stupid Hallmark holiday for women to milk their husbands/partners for gifts so he doesn't get into it.



I like the idea of V Day on another day though. It would be nice to be made to feel special and not just because the calender says you have to lol

I agree. You don't even have to call it a "V day" .. It can just be an "us" day. lol

Haha I know how that is. I was in pre-term labor for almost two months before I even had DD so it's been since way before that that we actually went on a date without bring a baby along.

I'm doing the 14 days of valentines for my DH and and the actual day I'm surprising him with new golf clubs and a date night. He thinks all of our sitters are booked for the night and is bummed. For that day I have a box of honey comb cereal with a tag that says Honey comb your hair bc we have a hot date tonight!
