I never knew Grunt Labor’s grandfather, but after the many stories I’ve heard about him, I feel that we would have gotten along quite fabulously. Although, he would have never used the term fabulously. Among other things, we both liked to hang onto things. Some might call it hoarding. I, and maybe Grandpa, though would…
Last week, I realized Valentine’s Day was fast approaching. And I hadn’t bought a damn thing for Grunt. So I looked at him and said “Maybe we should just skip Valentine presents for each other this year since it seems the hemorrhaging of money at the 70’s Landing Pad will never cease.”
Now this was true. Renovations ain’t cheap. It’s also true that I had absolutely no idea of what to get him and was probably just trying to get out of stressing over finding the perfect gift.
Anyway, when I said this, his face fell, he looked down, shrugged his shoulders and said, “Alright.”
Obviously, he wanted to buy Valentine gifts. A few minutes later, he suggested we just spend $20 each on gifts. And they could be funny gifts.
This was a challenge I could agree too. And possibly win at.
I won’t tell you what I got him because then he would know before he got the gift, but I do want to share all these fantastic, slightly inappropriate Valentine cards I found while I was on the hunt.

With the exception of Halloween and Christmas, I’m usually not a big holiday decorator. I have a few little things I set out for Valentine’s Day and Easter, but that’s about it.
But…..the circus is now old enough to really enjoy these holidays a little bit more…and since I am mom of the year and all, I felt I should up my Valentine’s game a little.
So, I whipped up an adorable little heart garland and the kid and I even made her very own valentines in an hour.
Because I’m mom of the year like that.
