Cupid, Draw Back Your Bow

Filed under: Elle & Zed,It's Me, Lass,Mr. Wonderful — by InterstellarLass @ 9:43 am

Happy Valentines Day everyone! Granted, it’s a manufactured holiday, but I don’t think it hurts to tell someone you love them. And don’t take for granted that someone does love you and that you mean a lot to them.

I was reminded of that early this morning. Nick took Elle to school early, and I didn’t get to see her before she left. About fifteen minutes after her school started, my cell phone rang. Elle was on the other end in tears. I’m thinking, Uh oh, she’s forgotten/lost/broken her glasses or she left her Valentin(m)es at home or she left her party item at home. She started off:

Elle: Mommy I love you.
Me: I love you too baby. What’s the matter?
Elle: I love you Mommy and I miss you.
Me: I know sweetie. What’s the problem?
Elle: I didn’t get to see you this morning and wish you Happy Valentimes Day.
Me: Oh baby. I know. I got your Valentine and I love you too. Thank you. I want you to have a good day today. Cheer up baby.
Elle: OK Mommy. I love you.
Me: I love you too.

She’s my bundle of energy, my ball of fire, my tough little girl. But she’s also my sweet, sensitive, loving little girl that loves to give hugs and kisses and send sweet ‘notes’ to you and leave them on your pillow. For Valentine’s she’ll get these earrings and bracelet. She’ll have to grow in to the bracelet, but the price was right.

Zed is easier to make happy. A box of size 3 B-flat clarinet reeds ($25 for a box of 10!) and a haircut make him happy as a clam and makes me a “rockin’ mom”. But then buying him Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team for his Valentine gift helps.

Nick got me a dozen red roses. And lest you think he skipped on the romanticism of the day, I also received a t-shirt. But not just any t-shirt. A sexy Wookiee t-shirt. Featuring the other hairy man in my life, Chewbacca. A while back he also burned me a copy of a song called “Chewbacca” by Supernova. Wookiee singing is music to my ears. (Check out a sample of track 9.) Thanks baby for developing my inner nerd. I’ve always known I was a nerd at heart, but was afraid to show it. Now I relish in my nerd-ness. What a wookiee!

  5. Valentine’s day is one manufactured holiday I appreciate. That’s so sweet about Elle, I’m sorry she was sad, but at least she got you on the phone.

    My nerd husband can bring out my nerd side too. Happy day!
