Well, Joshua my son brought home a hand made Valentines card for us (mommy & daddy). It is a nice heart shaped envelope with extra hearts appliques here and there and very nicely made. He brought it to me and said, "Mommy, pick a coupon from here...without looking..." I gladly picked one and it read "Free OOXX". Then he said, "Oh! That's free hugs and kisses" and gave me a nice hug and a few kisses and of course he got it in return.
Then he said, "Daddy has to give me $5 because he picked that..." I was a little puzzled to hear that as I was not sure why Daddy has to pay $5 and what kind of coupon was that. On further inquiry he decided to show all his other (coupons) options I could have picked from. I just couldn't help laughing when I saw that. Because it all had a $$ value to it or something substantial for him and not us! He had changed the idea of the whole thing completely for his gain.
The options were:
Game for the whole week
Get $5 for me
Whole car wash for $25
Clean the whole house for $15
Free OOXX (at least one thing he thought of giving at no cost :) )
I was very glad I got the best of all - which was FREEEEEEEE.... I wish you all the same! Happy Valentines day everyone!
