The advantage to having a child still oblivious to the calendar and which days holidays actually fall on is that it's easy to "move" a holiday to another day without any grief or disappointment. Between illnesses going around and bad weather, a flexible schedule is necessary this winter. Also necessary is the resolve to drive despite the forecast because road conditions are just not going to get better soon enough.
Today, I managed to get Evie to a friend's house for a play date Valentine exchange. Evie appreciated the opportunity to play with other kids her age, as well as the opportunity to stock up on some candy. I appreciated the opportunity to be somewhere other than my house for a while.
