Welcome to a day in my life. I can't guarantee that this will be an exciting read for anyone. My life is filled with all the mundane activities of a stay-at-home-mom just trying to raise her three sons to be the best men they can be.

Valentines Day

OK, I admit it. I'm not a romantic person. I'm not overly sentimental. John is the romantic one in our relationship.

Valentines Day usually passes without too much notice around here ... much to John's dismay. The boys don't get into it either. (I'm sure this will change when they start dating.)

This year John gave me a dozen, beautiful red roses. They are lovely, and I was touched. He always remembers Valentines Day.

However, he was upstaged. When I picked Matt (remember, he's 17) up at school, he handed me a little gift bag that he'd purchased at school that was filled with chocolate. "Happy Valentines Day" he said. I, of course, was touched. I smiled and said "Matthew, you really didn't need to buy me anything." He said "I know. But I thought that you deserved it because you're such a great mom."

Now, that was a great Valentines Day!


  1. Way to go Matthew!
