He asked, "So are you going somewhere with Daddy?" I said, "No; Daddy will still be in California."
My boy said, "Well, I'll be your Ballentine."
I thought that was pretty sweet. I gave him a kiss, said okay and smiled at him as I carried Paxton to the bath. Xander went to his room and shut the door; I assumed he was playing superheroes. A few minutes later, he came and asked me if he could have some of my "stick things." After some questioning, this turned out to be pipe cleaners. I said yes. Again, I assumed this was a method of tying up Dr. Doom. After a few more minutes, he asked where he could find "a glass jar for putting things in." I directed him to a vase under the sink, not really thinking about what he was doing because I was busy juggling wet babies. A few minutes after that, he came to where I was dressing Piper, said, "Happy Hearts Day!" and gave me this:

I'm feeling pretty blessed today to have two sweet guys in my life (and the twins, of course), and I thought I'd share the love. Happy Hearts Day to each of you!!!
