This “Best” story comes from Cassie Mae, author of SWITCHED and FRIDAY NIGHT ALIBI.
Last year, I was stuck in the hospital on Valentine’s Day, postpartum and with my sweet NICU baby. Hubby had the other kids already for a week by himself, and he was learning the hard way what it was like to deal with the two devils boys. I got clearance to go out to lunch with him, and he dropped the older two off at Grandma’s and we went to Texas Roadhouse. Both of us were so tired we fell asleep at the table. I literally had a fry halfway to my mouth, and he was drinking out of an empty glass when the waiter woke us up. So we went back to the hospital and slept for as long as we wanted that afternoon. All in all, not a bad way to spent Valentine’s Day when you’re the parent of three kiddos.
