Having children is not exactly synonymous with a romantic Valentines Day. Gone are the nights of candlelit dinners, late night strolls on the beach and enjoying the romantic moonlight (unless you have a reliable babysitter of course!).
While you are stuck at home, waiting for the kids to go to sleep so you can enjoy some alone time, have a read of these tweets from fellow parents. They will be sure to make you smile, and may just make your Valentines Day better!
When a home made card just doesn't quite work
Women talk about how romantic a home-made Valentine is until you draw a heart on the back of the cable bill with a highlighter.

Keeping it simple this Valentines Day
Me, “Don’t waste money on flowers for Valentine’s Day! It’s a commercialized holiday that pressures you into spending money. I don’t need a stuffed teddy bear or chocolate. Just tell me you love me. That’s enough.”
Husband, “Is this a trap?”

Who says you still can’t enjoy an evening out for dinner?
I bring my kids to a romantic restaurant on Valentine's day as a birth control reminder to the other couples.

Well, there is nudity and chocolate…..
My toddler running around in just a diaper, chocolate smeared all over his body & face like war paint. So Valentine’s Day is going well.

Now that would be sweet and thoughtful!
I'm not sure what my husband has planned for Valentine's Day but I hope it involves him taking the kids & leaving me home alone.

Candlelit dinner be damned! This ticks so many boxes.
Planning a hot Valentine's Day where I'll give husband one of 6yo's leftover Avengers cards, SpongeBob chocolates & his choice on Netflix.

This is the ultimate Valentines Day gift.
Hubs booked a romantic getaway at a resort for Valentine's Day.
I'll miss him, but when I said I wanted peace and quiet, I meant alone.

Would those festivities be some chocolate and an early night to bed?
The toddler's asleep!
Let the Valentine's Festivities BEGIN!
Scrolling through facebook and seeing what everyone else is up to for Valentines Day.
For extra romance this Valentine's Day, close the bedroom door so the kids don't see you longingly staring into your phones.

Many a romances are started with a good glass, or box as is the case, of wine!
[at the grocery store]
Me: *grabs box of wine*
Wife: Seriously? It's Valentine's Day.
Me: *grabs bigger box of wine*

Best Dad ever!
I'm chaperoning a Valentine's Day date for my 15yo and his girlfriend so I made her garlic pizza for dinner. Genius Level: 100
