Our Valentine’s day began with Alex asking if he could eat candy hearts for breakfast. You can imagine what type of answer I gave in response. He then asked in 5 minute intervals for the next hour.
In the afternoon, I prepared two desserts. First, animal crackers dipped in white chocolate and candy sprinkles for my little valentine. And for my big valentine, chocolate strawberries. I definitely have a lot of respect for anyone who does this for a living as it’s really hard to make them look even half-way presentable.
For dinner I made creamy tagliatelle with spring onions and green peas. Claudio brought home beautiful long-stemmed roses.
After finishing up the meal, we took turns opening cards. Many thanks to my mom and Aunt Kathy, Joan, Terri & Maria for sending valentines. That was very sweet! My little valentine loved his present from mommy and daddy – a red slap-on armband and a little teddy bear from Terri & Maria. It never ceases to amaze me how very simple things can bring such joy to a toddler.
Hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
