Once you’re a parent, Valentine’s Day takes on a whole new meaning. Breakfast in bed, who? But even if the romantic dates, extravagant trips, or expensive presents are a relic of the past, that doesn’t mean the holiday can’t be celebrated at all. Having a kid in the mix just requires a little extra stealth and strategy. Even better than family time this year may be phone time, and by that I mean waking your partner up with hilarious Valentine’s Day memes. Even though it may not seem like a gesture that would pull at the heartstrings, a meme that perfectly encapsulates your relationship actually may be the most heartfelt gift money can’t buy. You can make your partner break a smile without even breaking the bank by gifting them with a funny, romantic, or cheesy meme on the 14th as soon as they wake up. However it plays out, the Internet is there for you with funny Valentine’s day memes that parents can relate to.
