Stop asking me what Im buying for my kids, isn't Valentine's day for couples? When in sam hell did we start making this Christmas #2 and buying stuff for kids. You're not a in romantic way with kids (ew and ew) so stop asking me that. BTW, everyone doesn't celebrate this stupid ass, dumb Hallmark, fake ass holiday. No im not single either. Stop it already!

Lol I do agree with you, but it's my moms
Favorite holiday apparently so we always woke up to something. Nothing out of control like Christmas though.

I want my kids to have a childhood thy will remember... Candy and a stuffed animal is fine. After all, they will see mommy get something and I think it's only right to have that tradition with them. Shrugs. What you do with your kids is what you do...

I always buy my daughter a small box of chocolates or other Valentine's candy. Why does it have to be just for couples? KIds give each other Valentines in school. What's the big deal? I wouldn't go overboard with gifts for anyone on Valentine's day.

because cupid didnt' go around shooting kids in the ass and having unnatural way towards kids. This isn't about them.

I had plenty of childhood without celebrating fake holidays.
