After five children and twenty-five years of marriage I wouldn't ever say the romance is gone. No!
But, we are realistic and pragmatic. Flexible too. Kevin is our last child who actually wants to hang around with us. And, he was the only one without plans on V-day.
Marc and I get plenty of nights out these days. When we had a bunch of little ones, Valentines day, our anniversary- they were sacred. We made plans, we secured babysitters, we spent big bucks on a special night out. These days,-thanks to Mr. Economy, ( I HATE him!) and the fact that we are out a lot and actually have an adult life...we don't feel it is as necessary or dire that we are alone.
We know how fast time goes and we only have a couple more years until Kevin is out with his Valentine. So, until then I don't mind sharing a date with him-even Valentine's day!
by the way we saw Slum Dog Millionaire. LOVED it! Very powerful, upsetting movie...yet the best ending ever. I have been sad thinking about it though.
Have you seen it? What do you think?
