Be mine!  Romance is lovely (it’s how we got these kids in the first place).  Puppy love and friendship Valentines at school are loads of fun.  But there’s just something extra special about a mom & her little girl spending quality time.  Or a Daddy-Daughter Date.  Little boys can always use some special mommy time, and a boys only outing is pretty precious for everyone involved.  Here are super spots for some alone time with your littlest Valentine.  (Most of these spots make great family outings, too.)

Start Your Engines

For little ones that love cars and trucks and all things with wheels, a one-on-one outing to the Petersen Museum is a dream. Give them your undivided attention to put together train tracks, race hot wheels, and build vast block cities for the cars to zoom through. Top if off with lunch at Johnny Rockets on the ground floor, and you win Parent of the Month.

What do you have up your sleeve for your little Valentine this year?  Let us know in the comment section.
