1. Cancelled movie date. We reserved seats to watch Warm Bodies (yup, zombie love for Valentines!) twice and cancelled them twice too because we couldn’t leave the house. We couldn’t find a babysitter, for one. We have one yaya, but we need at least 2 people watching over the babies if we have to be away for a long time. On top of it, these two girls are keeping us glued to their crib with their smiles, and their cries, and all the little noises they make. But hey, how can we complain?
2. Roses & chocolates. D came home with a single-stemmed rose and some Ferrero chocolates for me. We have to admit, no matter how cliche flowers and chocolates and teddy bears are, it still makes us, women, feel warm and fuzzy inside when we’re the recipients of these traditional symbols of love. Yes, even on an overrated occasion such as Valentines Day.
3. Loves of my life. Our movie date may have been cancelled, the single-stemmed rose dried up, and the chocolates consumed, but the best part of Valentines Day was ending the night squeezed in our queen-sized bed, with these two wide-eyed baby girls who don’t have any idea that we’re sooo in love with them. At the risk of sounding like a bad Hallmark greeting card, everyday is like Valentines day at the Oyos home.
