Anytime I go into a store lately there is Valentine’s Day stuff everywhere but is that all it means?.

You can’t seem to miss it.

 

How Do You Celebrate Valentine’s Day as a Family?

The day in itself has never been huge to me.

I wasn’t one to sit and hope for flowers or a special night out.

For the longest time I considered it just another way for stores to make money.

Now there are children involved, I don’t see it in quiet the same light anymore. 

Sure in a lot of ways I don’t see the point in spending a whole bunch of money on single day.

But I do see the point in doing something with the day for the sake of the children.

 

This is What we Do as a Family

We get a couple little treats for the kids, usually a stuffed animal and a small chocolate or something little.

My husband and I don’t get gifts for each other. 

We make sure to have a family night meal.

If it fits in the schedule we go out, if it doesn’t that’s ok to.

Usually we will play a game with the kids or read an extra book with them.

After bedtime my husband and I will watch some of our PVR’d shows or a movie.

We use Valentine’s Day to as a reminder to show everyone that you care about them.

We don’t use the day as an excuse to spend money and buy gifts.

For us, I would rather our kids see us happy spending time together, rather than seeing us buying gifts once a year because there is a special day.
