Taking a pass on the fancy Valentine’s dress and heels this year (so long pricey dinner, hello take out with the fam) doesn't mean having to say farewell to a love of seasonal fashion. The dream of finding the perfect heart-themed ensemble lives on! After all, dressing kids up in cute outfits outfits while they're still young enough not to pick their own clothes is one of the best perks of being a mom of littles, right? Definitely. 

This Valentine's Day, forget about waxy chocolates they'll take one bite of before spitting out (no one likes orange creme, please stop making those) and don't bother getting them an overpriced card they can't even read. Lord knows, they already have enough stuffed animals to fill an entire zoo, so that's a hard no on that heart-holding teddy.
