Here’s the thing about being “unaccompanied” for Valentine’s Day…you can spend it just about any way that you like. Which isn’t a bad thing. This Friday, there’s a dinner with some of my good girl friends (galentines? I see that’s a branding thing now…), and any hugs and kisses and cuddles will be provided courtesy of my two diplo-kiddies. I’ll take those from them any day of the week, not just Valentines, but I’ll see if they can humor me with a double batch….
One of the final things I did on maternity leave was to really clean out my closet, and I noticed I could do with a new pair of pajamas or two. I’ve been getting a little far into the sloppy mamma field. Nothing too frilly or fancy – when it’s just you and two tots, a silk chemisette isn’t quite on the menu. So I rounded up a few pairs that still fit the order of being nice and feminine, yet can hold up to a morning full of oatmeal and cartoons, or a ginormous tickle fest.
My companions on Valentine’s evening itself will probably Meredith Grey and Olivia Pope (seriously, that was the longest hiatus ever), two of the most tragic galentines out there, but figured, if I can get the littles into bed at a decent hour, why not unwind, be entertained by their drama and have a beauty regimen or two. If you ask me, not a bad way to spend the weekend at all.
