Valentine Love

IĀ  love my kids and husband more than I can express to you. They are the ones who make me get up in the morning (horizontal children in your bed tend to do that) and the ones who put smiles on my face. I have the deepest love for our children and the man who is my partner.carolineI love that you go to bed with dolls but insist on playing Legos too.

Derek and Caroline in the snowI love what an amazing dad you are to our children.

I love that you two always want to be together and do the same silly things.

I love that you are always talking on the phone, going through my purse, or playing on the computer – all while smiling.

I love that you are willing to do things for our children that are out of your comfort zone – just because you want to make them smile.

I love that you are always finding ways to have fun together.

I love that you are passionate about animals and your life’s dream is to work at the zoo (at the cash register).

I love what an amazing big brother you are. You are always willing to watch, follow, or play with your brother or sister.

I love that you make us all laugh everyday.

I love that you love each other.

I love that you are my equal for taking care of our children. You are always cleaning, cooking, going to practices, and taking care of us.

    • They truly almost always hang out together – it’s deciding what to do that gets them in trouble – one always thinks they have the best activity in mind while the other is sure that their idea is best.
