What do you want for Valentine's Day?

Lauren Young

Happy Valentine's Day to all the Working Parents readers out there!

Careful magazine readers know I'm also the self-annointed chocolate expert here at BusinessWeek. (Make sure you check out my excellent slide show on good chocolate gifts.)

But I don't want chocolates for the holiday. In fact, I'm probably the only woman in America who asked for...drumroll please...a will. That's right, a will. You know the old adage about the cobbler's children going barefoot? Well, I'm married to an attorney, so naturally our legal affairs are in shambles. We have no will. It's quite pathetic, really. But I've seen an early draft, so I think my wish will be granted.

My guess is that I'm not the only one with an offbeat VD request. Fellow blogger Amy Dunkin posted an item earlier this week that women really want the gift of serenity. No flowers, no massages, just peace and quiet.

Is that really the case?

What do male and female readers of the Working Parents blog want this Valentine's Day??? Do tell!

I wrote about this on my blog today. In essence, I said that my husband's sweetest Valentine's gift to me is taking care of our daughter while I go to the office. What more could I ask for?

just time to relax and talk, for once

no pressure, no hype

just to talk and take it easy

silence woven with thoughts desired to be shared

simple
