Valentines Moms REALLY Want

Valentine’s Day is coming up, and men everywhere are trying to figure out how to make the women (hopefully just ONE woman, actually) in their lives swoon. But here’s the thing…we moms don’t need flowers, chocolates, or wine. Those should be surprises for when we have a really crappy day at work or are up all night with a sick kid. What we really want for Valentine’s Day is for you to speak our love language. And if you’re anything like me, my love language is LITERALLY  language. So bust out the construction paper, scented markers, and glitter glue once the kids are in bed and get creative. Need some inspiration? Here are some ideas for Valentines Moms REALLY want.

    Lol, these are all great suggestions! I would love a chance to catch up on my shows while my husband did the laundry.

  2. Jennifer Van Huss says

    These are spot on!! What I really want for Valentine’s Day is time with my hubby, where I AM THE FOCUS OF ATTENTION. Not the kids, not the dog, not sports, not household chores, ME!

  3. Annemarie LeBlanc says

    I would love to hear at least one of those not only on Valentines but frequently! Oh my goodness. I really need a break and I hope they’d give me what I really want for Valentines – an undisturbed sleep, dinner and laundry all done, my favorite book, and breakfast in bed.

    I totally agree! There is nothing more romantic than a man who does something thoughtful for you like helping you clean the house or watching the kids so you can go get a massage! I don’t want roses or chocolates. 🙂

    As a busy Mom to 5 I always tell my family that all I want is for everyone to get along! They never believe me and want to buy me earrings I will never wear.
