Our local cafe are doing valentine brunch with a free creche being run by the church. Dh has refused because he doesn't do anything that involves the church. We are doing nothing for valentine. My dh says that's the price to pay for having 5dc.
I made it very clear that a break (just for a few hrs) is what I would like, but I'm not going to get that either. After getting the house cleaned from top to bottom yesterday, I got home from my evening job to find it a mess again because he had clearly let the children run riot in my absence and not cleared up any mess created. The washing I ask him to fold when dry was also sitting cold in the tumble dryer and will now need ironing.
To top it all, he has agreed to my sons girlfriend staying over tonight and tomorrow and invited his parents over for Sunday roast. He thinks its alright though because while I was changing a wriggly baby's nappy, still half asleep this morning, he shouted upstairs that he bought me a box of chocolates from the garage, but hurry up because dd is eating them. Who says romance is dead!
DH is at work 'til 6pm. DS4 is on day discharge from the hospital and a complete fusspot. The house is a mess because I haven't got round hiring a weekend housekeeper yet. I came home from a night at hospital to find my BiL had dressed all kids in red and covered in what suspicously looked like raspberry jam. H
Only then did I realise it's valentine's day so I rallied the DC into helping me make a card for DH and some paper roses! also sent him a cheeky picture but shh Also letting the DC help coat strawberries in chocolate while caring a cluster feeding oxygen baby in a sling! Chocolate is everywhere including DS4 and his o2 tubes! Luckily we managed to avoid his OG tube too!
