Since my kids have become old enough to understand the meaning of Valentine’s day (albeit more so contrived to boost the quarterly reports of card and flower companies, than be a reminder to fete your love ones with kisses) the holiday has completely changed from an egocentric experience, to one where my sole focus has become a day my kids know I’m allowed unsolicited and *gasp* gratuitous public displays of affection with them as my targets. So how does a weight watchers mini cheesecakes recipe fit into my Valentine’s Day plan?!
I can’t imagine what this day will be like when my daughter is fretting over whether or not her boyfriend sent her a dozen roses and my son is nervously picking out a box of chocolates for the object of his affection. Until that day arrives, I am more than happy to use this holiday ( contrived by corporations or not) to remind my kids that expressing love for another human being, is one of the most powerful gifts they can bestow upon another. And to help the get in the spirit of the holiday we will be baking and eating treats!
