Be My Mr. Good Enough!

Do you think I should get you a Valentine?

I’m going to be seriously upset if you spend money on roses that die and please remember I hate the creams. In fact we don’t need chocolate, there’s still some from Christmas.

I was talking to her not you, my sweet husband pointed to our six-year-old daughter, Ainsley.


You got a laptop and we’re going to dinner. You’re not getting me anything are you?

Do you want me to?


Actually, I like to get roses and I would love more chocolate, Daddy. I’ll make you a card. How come I can’t go to dinner?

You get all those cards from your friends at school. Valentine’s is for Mommy and Daddy to go to dinner. You get to go to Nana’s

But, I want to be your valentine.

Okay, Daddy can be your valentine. Zack will you be my Valentine?


Isn’t it romantic?

Check out this worthy article, Marry Him, in The Atlantic by Lori Gottlieb. She makes the case for settling for Mr. Good Enough.

    I am so not in to Valentine’s. Our church is doing a dinner. It’s 20.00 per couple, and we get a fancy sit down dinner, guest speaker, couples photo, child care, and the company of some great friends. I think it’s a steal!

    Our Aniversary, is two weeks after V-day, so we try not to go overboard 🙂
