On Valentine's Day Yesterday with our Preschooler...We Parents had OUR Proud Moment!!!

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

Yesterday we went to Market Broiler restaurant to celebrate Valentine's Day as a family. We ordered our food [all fish ,BTW,of course !] and my hubby and I took turns keeping our preschooler occupied with the kids' menu --coloring the fish,tic-tac-toe games,etc. Then, our food was brought to us and we prayed for it, ate it and conversed with each other.
A nearby customer was waiting for her food and happened to comment to us on how IMPRESSED she was with our 3 and 1/2 y o's BEAUTIFUL TABLE MANNERS!!!! We were SO HAPPY AND PROUD of our preschooler and told him so while we thanked her!!!!
~~~To ALL PARENTS EVERYWHERE, these moments may BE FLEETING,but they LAST IN OUR MEMORIES FOREVER~~~~~ Just as our TIME with our little ones goes SO FAST!!!!!
~~~So TREASURE TODAY [no matter how bad it gets,because the 'PROUD PARENT MOMENTS ' are never where you expect them and sometimes they are just around the corner or right in FRONT OF you!~~~
This blog is dedicated to my wonderfully supportive hubby & fantastic son [who was eating heartily that night!] and.... to my Parents of PRESCHOOLERS team, My Late-in-Life Mommies Team and My Homeschooling Team~~~Parents,DON'T STOP TRYING, give YOURSELVES a PAT ON THE BACK, be EACH OTHER'S CHEERING SQUAD, and remember emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    None. I can't believe it! But I only allow myself to have chocolate on Sunday and Wednesday. Since Val Day was neither, I didn't get chocolate. And I didn't feel all that deprived!

    I had a banana! No candy, once I start I will never stop. Satsifying my sweet tooth with fruit.

    My son gave me a heart filled with chocolate. I knew I couldn't just not eat it for fear of hurting his feelings. My solution was to offer a chocolate to everyone in the house, including him, and then I ate 1 dark chocolate candy. It was 70 calories and delicious. My son was happy.

Happy Valentine's Day~~A Gift From The Heart....

Monday, February 14, 2011

Since it's Valentine's Day today,why not list your most unique or best gift you received on Valentine's Day?
Mine was two years ago~~My husband ,knowing how much I love scrapbooking and needing a workspace,converted the guest room into a scrapbooking room! {He's a carpenter among his many other gifted traits!] So now I have my own desk and plenty of counter space [enough to do 9 pages at once if I needed to!]. Took him two months!
That same year, my gift to him was two organizers for the garage that were labelled and grouped~~one had four slotted plastic drawers~~~all the nails, screws, nuts&bolts, etc. were put in so he could find what he needed at a glance [and I could,too!].Both were from Lowe's--took me 3 mos. to organize!!!
What is YOUR unique/best gift received on Valentine's Day??? emoticon

    ...when you're willing to drive to the library during a WINTER STORM, because your electricity is out and you need to use their computer to log into Spark, so you don't lose your Spark streaks!
