Valentines Baby

[deleted account] ( 6 moms have responded )

Our youngest son was born on valentines day. He will be 2 this year and I am struggling a bit because I have loved decorating and having lots of fun for valentines day. This year I am trying to figure out how to do both valentines day and his birthday. The other thing is we have given our older children candy on valentines day and they remember because they were commenting on it earlier this week as we were talking about holidays coming up. Anyway, if anyone has any creative ideas please share!

My little one will also be 2 on Valentine's Day. Is there any way that you could celebrate Valentine's Day early? Maybe do something fun on Friday evening and celebrate his birthday on Saturday. You could make heart shaped pizzas for dinner and give them candy after.

My daugher is a Valentine's baby as well. I guess this hasn't been a problem yet for me because for her and for her sister, who is just 10 months older, a day is just like any other day. I guess in the future I will try to not make a huge deal out of Valentines Day. Of course it should be recognized with candy etc as it always is, but I think it's important for my daughter to feel like her birthday is important because it's HER BIRTHDAY.

This year I am celebrating her birthday on Sunday for the convenience.

My daughter is two days younger than your son, but i was POSITIVE i was going to have her on V-day. So i was making plans ahead of time. Whatever day the 14th is, Either do all your v-day stuff a day early/late or his birthday. I would rather do V-day stuff ahead of time. That way, if your hubby and you wanted to go out to dinner, you'd be missing ALOT of the v-day crowd! To children, It doesn't matter what day they DO it, as long as they get it. And tell your kids the day b4 is their v-day, and the next is their brothers b-day. If they object, Say "well, you didn't have to share YOUR birthday with a holiday, did you?" Or something creative like that! I hope it help! Good Luck!
