A Bear, A Bug, A Lobster & A Valentine

My little BuG. My Baby Valentine.Um. Anyone seen my days?!?!?!? Seriously.  They have zoomed by faster than light the past few weeks!  I'm vibrantly thrilled that it's February..but I'm also a bit stressed.

Today is no exception.

Boston hasn't been feeling very well the past few days and today I though..hm..we're suppose to fly out on Wednesday-I better take him to the doctor just in case his ears are all messed up. 

Bad MOM strike ONE.

That joyous mommy guilt took over.  What a jerk I am!!!  We get there-and not only does he have an ear infection..but he has the FLU!! 

So totally bummed. 

The doc gave us a prescription and I jetted to the pharmacy.  It's the ONLY drive up window around as this poor kid was still in his PJs and whining for me to hold him.  So of course I didn't want to drag him in there.

I felt so bad.  They kept screwing up our order and we waited...FOR AN HOUR AND A HALF.  I mean, I didn't want to get him home-then have to drag him back out!  So I was destined to get that prescription.

He couldn't nap...and him being sick is the most pitiful thing ever.  I actually gave him his Valentine's last night. This totally soft bear the size of him, a little candy & an adorable little book. 

Needless to say-today this kid got a couple extra big presents (from my garage of goodies) and more hugs, kisses & holding than anyone EVER! Even on Valentine's Day.

I feel bad.  Last year-we both got the flu shot and we BOTH got sick. This year-I decided not to get the shots..and he gets the flu!!!!!!!!  Sometimes I feel like I can't win.

But I do remember...when I was sick as a kid.  Even though I felt like poo..there was nothing better than having my mom love all over me. 

Yeah, dad's are great......but nothing like a special mom.

So that's exactly what I did.

Then my special Valentine came home...and I made him Lobster.  I've never made it before-but it turned out AWESOME!!  We ate on these adorable heart shaped plates that I got when we first started dating...hm. like 2004?!?!  Yeah.  7 years ago.

That's kind of fun to think about.

I love my Valentine.  I'm so glad that our lives are so much better.

I have some serious shortfalls...but that man still finds me attractive.  Inside and out.

Thank you God. For the best two Valentine's a girl could ask for.
