Happy Valentine’s Day! Or whatever event you are celebrating. Here we never do Valentine’s Day because it’s everyone’s birthday!
The first half of that day I will never forget. Mainly because the nurses asked me to “Keep it down”. Well, that was like baptizing a cat. I’m quite sure I declared I had had enough and no watermelon was coming out today. Nope, I changed my mind. We all know how that goes, right? Me begging for drugs like a junkie and them shushing me so I didn’t upset the other women in labor. Really?? But just as I gave up, here comes this gorgeous little boy with red hair and I fell in love. But after 24 hours I was tired and hurting and just wanted to sleep. So when they asked if I wanted to keep the said child in my room and take care of him myself instead of having him in the nursery, I may have asked if that isn’t what they get paid for. Okay, I did.
Eventually, we had three Valentine boys at our house. So, no it’s not my day. It’s their day and I love all of them and have no regrets. Or candy. Which is good.
Whatever you are doing, enjoy it! Tomorrow we are going to high tea and that is what I’m happy about.
