Saint Valentine again? It feels like it was yesterday… Is it part of the routine now?

Saint Valentine again? It feels like it was yesterday… Is it part of the routine now?

I am so not ready for Valentine tomorrow. Hopefully my wife got us some nice pre-made meal. I will need to sort out the wine and put it in a decanter, just to make it a bit more romantic… And most importantly, I will need to get the kids ready for bed early, well at least before 8:00pm as it is due to be within the rules of our daily routine!
This is our actual daily routine, it can be written in a few lines:

  • 7:45am – up, toilet and dress up
  • 8:15am –  breakfast finished, fight to get teeth brushed…
  • play time if all is going ok
  • 8:45 – shoes on, coat on, jump in the car
  • 8:55 – drop off at school and sometime nursery for the little one
  • finally a bit of quiet time… (if alone…)
  • 15:30 – back from school, shoes off, coat off, snack.
  • 16:00 – computer (20 minutes each): only if a reasonable snack has been taken…
  • 16:45 – Pyjamas then a couple of ‘Minetest Videos” (or Minecraft): only if Pyjamas on… And playtime (not computer)
  • 17:30 – Dinner (only for the kids in week days)
  • 18:30 – Videos or playtime (not computer) depending if there has been too much videos already… (Adults usually have their dinner then)
  • 19:00 – Collective story time (in bed) – Reading a story together
  • 19:30 – Cuddle good night for our middle one, read alone story time for elder, and cuddle/story for younger (usually in our bed with his mum)
  • 20:00 – Cuddle good night to elder one… And hopefully if all the chore has been done… Adult time!
  • And once in a year Happy Valentine time!If it happen during a week-end like last year, it would be of course a bit different you could read my Recipe for a successful Valentines day! article. But this year it’s a Tuesday and it is just another day…
    Do you think Valentine gets too much of a routine?

Are you still able to surprise your partner?
If yes please let me know and give me YOUR recipe! You could leave a comment for example.

I feel some pressure to do something special but i don’t know what to do! Well I know that I must shave my spiky cheeks and get a good clean! Maybe that will be a surprise already 🙂

So anyway Super Busy Daddies of the world I wish you a very loved Valentine day and I hope you’ll give me some good ideas for next year 😉
