Bring on February!

That’s right, it’s the month of love.  We kicked it off with a little celebration that included a fancy dessert auction, and while I made bids on what would be most delicious to me personally, my ever-thoughtful husband looked at everything and thought, what would most delight my 7- and 5-year-old daughters?  The result:

Sure enough, when J found out that she was taking this little beauty home, she began squealing and jumping up and down in delight.

Anyway, this little event, while fun, sucked up most of our day today, which made me think:  all this blogging is making me feel a little bit guilty.  I see all of these events and I’m simply not taking advantage of nearly enough of them.  Is it making any of you feel guilty?  Do I need to balance this out with tales of my own maternal incompetence so that you won’t feel compelled to enrich your children’s lives each and every day?  Or is it just my own neurotic desire to take on too much again?  Should I seek therapy?

Maybe I just ate too much cake.  Uugh. . . marzipan roses. . . .

Okay, just a reminder that if none of these fabulous activities call out to you, there are always the regularly scheduled events in our brand-new-but-surely-already-beloved What about TODAY? page.  And just in case you think that now I’ve become complacent and am simply lounging on my couch eating marzipan roses, I’ve already made additions to the page.  Because I’m all about bringing you some fun.

    Mmmm. Sign me up for a triple layer chocolate cake with pink roses. You must be the best mom and dad EVER. PS: Did you see our girl Taylor with Stevie Nicks last night on the Grammys? She’s so so cool.
