My husband has never been a real romantic. Ever. I know he cares, he just isn't one to show grand gestures of love. I have grown to accept that. Sort of.
Last year, I decided to leave it up to him. I threw my hands up and said I was done planning for everything. I figured he'd have to come through. I mean, how hard is it to make a dinner reservation? He knows my favorite restaurants, it's not brain surgery, right??
It was a freaking fail. We got to his parents to drop of the girls, and he realized he forgot to take the breastmilk bottles for Sydney out of the fridge like I had asked. It took an hour for him to go back home and get them, and return to his parents. Then, it was off to our big Valentine's Day date.
Do you know where he brought me? A bar.
No, I'm not kidding. He said they had great food. I was sitting directly across from the pull tab boxes and stepping on peanut shells. It was a Saturday night, so I think that's why he thought it'd be a good choice. His friends all showed up to hang out with us, on our romantic Valentine's Day date.
It's been a year, and I still haven't let him live it down. Now it's sneaking up around the corner. I have three choices:
A. Decide what I want to do and book it.
B. Save some money (which wouldn't be a bad thing right now) and just stay home and hang out as a family.
C. Leave it up to him. Can he fail two years in a row??
I'm tempted to choose C, just to see what he would come up with this year.
Do you ever test your significant other, when you know what the end result will be??
