This Mom Shoved Valentine's Day Down Everyone's Throat

And it tasted like Pepto Bismol.

For a change of pace, I decided to catch my children off-guard with being festive this year. All it took was sending everyone an "adorable" Valentine's app and a lot of Splenda packets to conjure up the sweetness in our lives for a day. At least that's what I thought. Guess they don't call it Conversation Candy for nothing!

Have a look...

Sick of this son's smart retorts, I send a heart to his twin brother with a love greeting:

Finally my 17 year old daughter (who btw takes 45 minutes to decide what she's gonna wear in the morning) decides to join in . . .

Desserts backwards = Stressed. Of course! And look -- this time playing Scramble was HIS idea. At least this confirms I'm with the right guy!

Hope your Valentine's Day was a little more on task than mine!
