Do Do You Love Me, Do Do You Love Me?

I was a huge Paula Abdul fan growing up.  I made up a ton of dances to her songs.  I'm pretty sure I still know most of the lyrics.  Straight Up was one of my favs.  Still is apparently.  I've listened to it on repeat this morning.  I'm cool like that.

Where am I going with this?  I don't know.  I was thinking about love...

Yesterday was Valentine's Day.  A day we don't celebrate as a couple because it's unnecessary.  I'm not one of those girls who needs flowers or a teddy bear holding a heart.  I need those things on our anniversary, and every other Friday and Tuesday afternoons.  So adding V-day would be too much for the Mr.

But now I have a little girl, and I want to celebrate it with her.  I loved Love Day as a kid.  I loved it until I was a teenager and no boys liked me...then I didn't love Love Day anymore.

Last night Nate told me he wanted Valentine's Day to be a day for he and Andrey.  He wants to give her little notes, flowers and gifts.  He said he wants his little girl to know she is loved on Love Day.  So even if she doesn't have a boyfriend when she's older, she'll know she always has dad.  It was so sweet!  And then I asked him what he got her, and he felt like an idiot and said, "nothing".  I guess he'll start next year.

I love you Nate.  I love you Andrey.  I love you still Paula Abdul.

  1. Awww.. tell N that my dad always was my Valentine and it was always so special for me and made me feel like the most important girl in the world. He would send flowers or bears or things to school. Funny thing is that did not set me up for later disappointment at not being showered with gifts, I am kind of the same way as you for V day not a biggee, give me a nice card and I am sooo happy! Great idea Mr P :)
