Mommy Daughter Date
Having such an age span between my two older ones and two younger ones is actually pretty difficult. At times, it is hard to switch back and forth from baby mode to pre-teen mode. And, it is especially hard to give my older girls the attention that they want and need when so much of my focus and energy is spent on the two little ones. So, I have decided to start doing monthly mommy daughter dates with my older girls. I planned my first one this last weekend with Katelund. It was SO MUCH FUN!!! We went to "Daddy's mall" and walked in and out of stores trying on clothes, jewlery, sunglasses, etc. Katelund spent her lawn mowing money on a bunch of fun accessories from Claire's and then we sat by the water fountain in the park and talked and laughed for awhile as we tried on all of our purchases. Then we went and ate frozen yogurt together. As we drove home, dancing and singing to the music as it blared out of the radio, Katelund looked at me and said, "Mom, this was the best day ever, thank you." We have been talking about it ever since and I'm so excited to plan one next month with Cloey.
