Since I became pregnant with my son I started to feel the need to be a more well prepared person. In 2010 I had my Christmas shopping done and wrapped in October. Since my son was due in December I didn't want to have any stress added to my delivery.
I started thinking of ideas for my sons first birthday party very shortly after he was born. With a birthday so near to Christmas I didn't want the holiday to overshadow his very special day.
Even with my new attempts at preparedness I was still a little saddened by what I saw at the grocery store this morning.
You might be able to guess what it was. The seasonal aisle that now contains Valentine's Day stock.
