Over Both Ears In Love

My German page-a-day calendar phrase today, Valentine's Day, is: Sie sind bis über beide Ohren verliebt. They fell madly in love. Literally: They are over both ears in love.



Yesterday I got to be Nicholas' sweetheart at his school's Sweetheart Candlelight Luncheon. This is a big deal at his elementary school and because of all the kids, they're spreading the luncheon across 3 days. Our day was yesterday. And I was the one he chose to be his sweetheart (since Mommy and Daddy were at work). Awww. How cute. Good food. Good "electric" candlelight, and even good string music by the nearby high school chamber orchestra.

What a memory. Over both ears in love!



Truth be known, Nicholas' real sweetheart is his mommy. And he wouldn't blink an eye in telling you so. He's always and forever wanting to buy her flowers...when she's sick, when she's sad, when she's celebrating, when it's Valentine's Day. He's gonna make some woman (besides us) a very happy lady one day.

In the meantime, on this special Heart Day, I hope we all have at least one Valentine about whom we can say we're over both ears in love. And not just for one day.

Happy Valentine's Day!

  2. Nicholas IS my true Valentine and the unconditional love we share is what keeps me going! However, I was happy to "share" him with Grandma, whom he loves dearly. Nicholas was very proud to have you there, Mom!

  8. Yes indeed, MP. I love to watch the changes too. And I try to picture what he will be like when he's a young man, all grown up. But for right now, I live in the moment of his Kindergarten-ness :)

  11. I don't have to point out the obvious, I know, but your daughter is simply beautiful. Looks just like her mommy. :)

  12. Ohhh. Thanks, Lisa. I think she's beautiful, of course, but then she's my daughter. As to her looking like me, well--aw shucks--flattery will get you everywhere!
