One of my goals and resolutions for this year, which you’ll find here in this post, is to spend more one-on-one time with each of my daughters. This led me to creating some mother-daughter date ideas.
I didn’t want your average, run-of-the-mill activities. I wanted some mother-daughter date ideas that I hadn’t already done. I also didn’t want to solely focus on activities that cost money either. I opted for mother-daughter date ideas based on each of my daughters age group and specific interests.
I’m looking forward to sharing with you how these worked out and whether the kids loved them or not.
Here’s an excerpt from my post…
Have you ever noticed that when you have your kids together the dynamic can be drastically different? When they’re with you on their own they’re different?
It’s kind of eerie isn’t it?
Just a couple of weeks ago I was driving my youngest to the store, just the two of us. This doesn’t happen very often because she’s the youngest. And while we were driving the silence in the car was startling.
She’s normally trying to shout over her sister or sing louder than her sister or just annoy her older sister in that special way only the youngest can. But here she sat looking quietly out the window just happy to be on the way to the store, just her and her mom.
It was then that I was struck with the realization that I haven’t set time aside for special mother-daughter dates.
