Valentine's Day is on Saturday and although Doug refuses to celebrate the Hallmark holiday, I like giving little gifts to our kids. Eero and Wilder are each getting a "California" map t-shirt and a Pez dispenser and Bijou, that lucky girl, gets plane tickets to LA to visit her old and dear friend Frances for the weekend. Lucky me, I get to tag along too and hang out with Sarah and Elias. Doug has to work, boo! And Eero and Wilder get to spend the weekend with our backup team Chelsea (the new sitter) and Alex (the old sitter). Thanks to my dear village for giving me the weekend off!
