For reasons totally related to my recent posts (but nothing I feel like talking about now), I didn't feel much like "celebrating" Valentine's Day yesterday. But it didn't go by completely unobserved. Somebody at work stopped me in the hallway to say "this will be Noah's first Valentine's, won't it? Oh, how fun!!!" Please tell me, how is [the Hallmark holiday about flowers and chocolate and romance] a fun holiday for babies?
Never mind that. Noah DID get a Valentine yesterday. To an 8-month old from his newly acquired 3-month old daycare buddy: a bag with M&M's and Twix and a lollipop. I had to laugh at the age-appropriateness*, but I won't say it wasn't appreciated! Certainly Noah can appreciate the thoughtful gesture while his daddy and I appreciate the SUGAR RUSH! The fringe benefits of parenthood -- reaping the spoils of Noah's candy holidays for many years to come!
*Who care's if that's not a word? It's Friday; cut me some slack!
