Are you ready for Valentine’s Day? I’m at least remembering it’s coming up in a couple weeks, but I haven’t done a whole lot.
Here’s where I’m at:
Plan romantic date with hubby
Partially done. We’ve decided that we are going to a movie the Saturday after Valentine’s Day and we have childcare lined up. However, we still need to decide which movies. Does anyone have recommendations for us?
Commit to strengthening my marriage throughout the month (I mean it is the month of romance)
Done! Actually sticking to this one was made easy because we are doing this 28-Day Challenge from Thrive Momma. I’m super enthusiastic, so we are going with a challenge that lasts the entire month. However, if you want to start with something a little shorter, here is a 2 week one that is awesome to bring your focus back on the little things that keep a marriage strong.
Make cute Valentine’s Day Cricut crafts
Nowhere near done. I’m a working mom, I barely manage to find time to make crafts/gifts for Christmas, let alone make ones for a holiday that is somewhat low on my holiday priority list. I’m all about (somewhat) realistic expectations here.
Plan Valentine’s Day themed f
We have arrived back at another one I’m slacking on. I keep reminding myself about the realistic expectations part. However, one recipe that I might be able to pull off because it’s so simple is this peppermint bark. I really don’t cook. I leave all the cooking to hubby, but since he doesn’t like peppermint, I may brave the kitchen to give it a try.
Do holiday-themed activities with Paxton throughout the month
Again this is something this working mom just hasn’t got around to doing. This working mom is struggling a bit over here with another holiday when I’m still recovering from Christmas, New Years and Paxton’s first birthday. I’m also not quite sure what activities would work well for a 13-month old. If you know of anything, let me know in the comments.
I may not be on top of it this year, but I’ve found what I’m going to do for next year! I’ve discovered this website Education.com. They have a bunch of awesome printable worksheets that are holiday-themed. These are perfect for a toddler learning activity that is holiday themed. I love this Valentine’s Day Word Tracer. Check out Education.com for more printables and learning activities just like this! If you click the image, you can get the downloadable PDF to use for your little one.
