Of course DH had 4 boxes of heart shaped candy out for the skids this morning. Maybe if the girls would stop eating so much candy they'd have dates on V day

LOLZ!!

I guess he knows their currency (food!). That's sad.

What did he leave out for you today? Or did his lover go unnoticed?

No. I got a cute card & a new book. He knows I dont want candy. I already bought a mini rose plant for the house so I told him no flowers.

Tonight we are going to watch the finale of our Netfix series we've been watching. Not a bad v day

SD19 has gained 50ish pounds since she graduated high school. She was already a size 18 at prom so Im guessing she's up to 250 pounds. She is still beautiful but has zero confidence. She told a boy no to sex and he said thats ok I didnt want a fat pig anyway but good for her to saying no to this prick!

SD16 is chunky but she thinks shes a size medium. Her clothes are all too small for her but she won't up her size. She doesnt dress skimpy or slutty but she looks ridiculous She says she doesnt have a boyfriend because there is no boy at school worth her time. My mom says thats probably just a cover because no boy will talk to her.

young guys are dumb. “Fat” is their go to insult cause it takes zero effort on their part but it works on almost all women, thin and not so thin.

Ha, I'm glad my DH agrees on this. We didn't do anything for SD7 aside from getting her the cards she's handing out at school today. 

Last year, I made little bags of treats for all of her classmates and got her a teddy/box of chocolates and she didn't thank me for either effort. In fact, she came home, sat down to eat her treats, and said "I'm saving some for daddy when he gets home" (this was while I was on mat leave and he was working) so this year, I didn't feel the least bit bad about not doing anything.

I grew up in the 70s in the US and we all had to hand out V-Day cards to EVERYONE at school - even that gross boy or that mean girl, so I can't blame people for thinking it's a free-for-all holiday. My mom always got me something and my grandmother always made me a v-day card. 

Then I moved to UK and it's exclusively for couples, which for me is preferable. But hey, whatever - do what you want.

It's churlish to be sniffy about gifts and it's entitled to expect them. But I think it would avoid a lot of problems if people just kept this one to couples - that is merely my personal preference.

kids gave each other valentines in their PEER group.  Not to be confused with a NCP bioDAD buying his princesss a full bouquet of flowers, candies, etc. etc. etc.

Chef bought SD, at the time six years old, a v-day plant;  which she promptly killed due to neglect in side of a couple of weeks.

The poor plant! Okay, I know I’m insane but I hate when a plant is neglected to death; it makes me sad. One of my tropical plants ain’t doing so hot and I keep fussing over it, I refuse to give up lol.

lol. 

My DH and I were traveling this weekend and he saw V-day chocolates and gifts for daughters in a store. He looked all confused. 

"Is that a thing??!!" he naively asked me. 

"No, dear." I assured him. "It's not."

My husband had to go out this morning before work and buy valentine gifts for his two sons. He has done this every year for them, and I kind of thought he wouldn't do it this year because they have hit puberty. One is 12, the other will be 16 next week. The oldest has been in constant trouble the past two years and has even beat up my husband and has violent outbursts. But, sure! Why not go buy a sappy card, candy and a balloon to give to him. Totally weird. I'm pretty sure if my parents, especially my dad, gave my brother valentine gifts he would have been completely embarrrassed. Especially when he was a teenager. I mean, maybe I'm being too judgmental, but a dad giving teenage boys silly little valentine gifts just seems odd to me.

When SD was young (little girl young, not teenager), DH might have bought her a stuffed animal or something, a couple of times, but that's it. Certainly never flowers.
