Here's a terrific project that every mom, dad and child can love. Send something lovely together as a family and you just might find your submission in a real live film like you've never seen before. Author and artist Amy Krouse Rosenthal has a sweet spot for goodness that is simple and heartfelt and she's still taking submissions.

Valentine's Day can be a challenge for the lovers at your house--and yes, I mean you! Just in case you're lamenting that you will ever have a meaningful, romantic evening ever again with your partner or spouse, here's a little Rx for the holiday of love. No babysitter will be required and I promise a night like this can only have a happy ending.

Are your kids despairing that there is no puppy to love in your house? Make everyone happy by doing a loving good deed that every kid (andforlorn puppy) is sure to love.

What is today's awesome giveaway you ask? 12 technology loving people will win a PBS Kids Go Flash drive bracelets!

That is a seriously cute baby in the first picture!

I like Valentine's Day, but I'm happily married, so that helps. My husband and I exchange cards and small gifts and try to go out for a nice meal.

I was bitter about it briefly in college, but then learned to spend the evening with other single girlfriends and had some of my best ever Valentine's Days with them- hanging out, eating, watching chick flicks, drinking wine. Honestly, those were more fun than some of the ones with my husband :)

I love Valentine's Day, but we don't typically do anything fancy to celebrate (lack o' moola). Usually, I just make sure to plan an extra-yummy dinner and a fancy dessert.

Sky writes...

Of course so in love! Valentine's Day is also the day Brand and I were married. The kids wake up to some Valentine goodies, chocolate and flowers and then later in the day they always "surprise" me with flowers. It's rather sweet.

i've always been rather bah-humbug about v-day, probably because i am a hopeless romantic and don't want to set myself up for disappointment. my hubby always gives the requisite chocolate and a rose, which is nice. but i'll take connection over stuff any day. maybe this year i'll find the words to ask for what i really want...

I love Valentine's Day in that it is my sister's birthday, and I adore her. Otherwise, it's not my favorite holiday. I just don't like Hallmark telling me this is the day to be romantic.

When my husband is out in the yard, and picks a few of the wild violets from the woods and brings them in to me - that blows me away. It means 1000 times more to me than a dozen roses delivered from a fancy store.

Romance is little things every day, not big things once a year. At least that's my feeling.

those usb bracelets look great... no need to worry about lost flash drives, very cool!

personally, i'm not a big valentines day fan. i'm one of the rare people who doesn't like receiving gifts so it's always been an uncomfortable time for me. plus, i think it's a bit of a wasteful holiday since much of what gets purchased (class valentines, candy wrappers, flowers, etc.) all ends up in the trash!

Jenny writes...

I don't mind Valentine's Day, but like others have said, it seems like there's a lot of waste at the end and thoughtful, romantic gestures everyday and at the most unexpected times mean so much more to me. I do like that the day reminds me to make a little extra time for me and my hubby!

I love Valentine's Day because it is an excuse to decorate the house in red and pink and our kids get into making handmade cards to send to the people we love, throwing our heart tablecloth on the table, and planning a special breakfast or dinner that we eat together. I'm not about flowers, jewelry, and splashy presents on V Day and have to agree with Nancy that the little romantic things throughout the year are much more important to me.

Kimberly writes...

I like it now that I'm married but before? Not so much.

Johannah B writes...

I could take it or leave it (Valentine's Day that is) because my house is full of love and wonder all year long!

YMGH writes...

It's such a sweet, fun day for everyone to feel loved.

ellen writes...

We don't really celebrate Valentine's day so much - we give a kiss and a hug - that's enough

I don't mind Valentine's day of the week, but like others retain assumed, it seems like there's a lot in life of wither by the side of the tip and thoughtful, romantic gestures everyday and by the side of the a large amount unexpected time mean so much supplementary to me. I puzzle out like with the intention of the day of the week reminds me to churn out a not enough very stage in support of me and my hubby!
