Happy Valentine's day!
As he walked in she asked "So where do you think we should go for dinner on valentine's day?"
"That hallmark holiday" he asked
Visibly sobered down she said "Yes that!"
"Thats a bunch of commercial nonsense" he said "Whats more ridiculous than setting a day aside to celebrate your love?"
But she thought, isn't it lovely to have one special day to celebrate love? Besides she had been eyeing that diamond pendant for far too long! And her birthday was still month's away.
She searched the internet... and went to him equipped with some research on Valentine's day!
"Do you know that valentine's day is celebrated in honor of St. Valentine. When there was a rule in Europe that young men shouldn't marry because of the ongoing war, he secretly married them off ! How sweet and absolutely romantic" she said
"Ugh" he grunted!
She was awfully quiet that day and he suggested they go out for dinner, "Lets celebrate our love today" he said.
The next day she thought of the perfect plan... she called her brother and enlisted his help.
On Valentine's day he left to office in the morning like every other day! She smiled and helped him through the morning.. without a word about Valentine!
In the evening he rushed in early, looking contrite "Many happy returns of the day honey" he said and produced a bunch of red roses and a blue box. Inside was the lovely diamond pendant.
"How did you know" she asked.
"I noticed how you were looking at it in the store" he said.
"Get dressed, we are going out to dinner " he said
They went to a lovely restaurant and had a candle light dinner complete with music and some dancing..
As they were driving back home he said "Sorry I can be so absent minded sometimes, if your brother hadn't told me..."
"Don't worry about it" she said with a smile.
Back home, he took her in his arms and said "Happy Birthday darling". She gave him an impish grin and said "Happy Valentine's day sweetheart!"
Disclaimer: This is not my story, although it seems like something I would do.. and probably should!! Just wanted to post something in honor of Valentine's day!!
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
Life is like that - part 3 is available in creative outbursts!
Nantu has a new refrain "Sometimes I be silly, sometimes I be naughty, sometimes I be good, sometimes I be bad, Always I be smart" (!!). I wonder where he learnt all this? He has taken to giving us attributes too... I was telling him a story yesterday and he says to me "Amma you are so funny". "What about daddy?" I asked "Daddy is so cute" he says!! Ha.. now I get to be funny mommy!
Valentine's day dawned like any other day in the Nantu household. DH like the man in my story, thinks it is ridiculous! I on the other hand, could use some surprise gifts.. but dropping pointed hints doesn't work! Whats a girl to do? The highlight of my day was the little hands around my neck early in the morning and the wet kisses on my cheeks with the words "I love you mommy" That made my day!!
