Judging from the photos of bouquets and chocolates in my Facebook timeline, I’m guessing your Valentine’s Day went well– and I suppose so were the florists, the chocolatiers and the chocolate makers. Everybody had a great day yesterday. Unlike the DIY Valentine’s Movie Night last year, I wasn’t able to prepare something fancy .
To make Ykaie feel the love in the air and how special Valentine’s Day is, I just prepared a breakfast in bed for her. Nothing fancy of course, just whole wheat pancakes cut out into hearts and strawberries to match the theme. I also put some message into her bananas.
She was surprised and was very happy about the set-up and the breakfast in bed. She even knew when I planned the whole thing! Of course, because she was happy and she loved what I prepared, I was elated.
I still wish I prepared it for both peanutbutter♥ and Ykaie, though.
Anyway, I took a photo of Ykaie holding that red heart cushion on a stick, it’s kind of a tradition. I’ll tell you more about that later.
Ykaie loves Romantic Comedies and I let her watch, with my supervision so that I can explain the scenes that needs explaining. Yesterday, our Valentine’s movie was 13 Going on 30. If you can remember, 13 Going on 30 is a 2004 American romantic comedy fantasy film starring Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo. It’s about a a 13 year old girl who played a game on her 13th birthday and wakes up the next day as a 30 year old woman.
I remembered I love this movie and Mark Ruffalo is cute in this movie…LOL!
Ykaie and that Heart-On-a-Stick
We bought that heart-on-a-stick to take a photo of Ykaie on her first Valentine’s Day in 2008 ( she was born in November 2007). We dressed her up in red on February 14, 2008 and let her hold this heart-on-a-stick which we bought for ₱20 at the market.
Then we did it again the following year in February 14, 2009. Ykaie was more than one year old in this photo and is a bit playful now.
I missed taking a photo in 2010, I don’t know why.
But by February 14, 2011, I made sure, she’s also dressed up in red and holding that heart-on-a-stick…
This is from February 2012, just before we went on our Valentine’s Date at Ilustrado Restaurant.
Last year, I can’t seem to find this heart-on-a-stick so I wasn’t able to take a photo. I found it last October among Ykaie’s other costume. So, we are back on track in our Valentine’s tradition!
Do you have any tradition during Valentine’s Day?
