Are you geared up for Valentine's Day yet? Have you made plans, checked and double-checked a babysitter, changed the sheets, and showered?
Valentines has never been a big deal around here for He's Too Good To Me and me. When you have three girls like he does, getting them a little something always seems more important than the two of us celebrating it. You know the whole Dads-love-your-daughters-like-princesses-so-they-don't-love-boys-too-young kind of thing.
Just a little sugar has always been enough to satisfy me.
This is our twenty-first Valentine's together. In celebration I thought I'd list twenty-one reasons why I love him and twenty-one reasons why I shouldn't. The fun part for me - he gets to create the same list about me.
We have spit and shook hands, sealed it with a smooch, and promised no hard feelings. Good fun like this is free and keeps the spark alive - along with a shower and a changing of the sheets now and then.
Come back tomorrow and check out the reasons we shouldn't love each other.
Here's a little teaser on the shouldn't's till tomorrow -
My #1 reason - he lied about his age. right. up. until. the. moment. we. got. our. marriage. license. the kicker - he only told the truth then because his parents had to sign for him. the double kicker - his mom had to tell me.
His #1 reason - I make him write for my blog.
By the way, he and I have been through some deep valleys together - really deep. One day I'm gonna tell you all about it, I'm still working on my nerve - and telling my children first.
Just saying that so you know that these reasons we shouldn't love one another - they don't hold a candle to the reasons we do.
