I love spending individual time with each of my kids. It’s so refreshing to get to focus on them one at a time and really devote all of my energy to them. It’s important for both of us that we get this time alone.
I must admit, having a daughter is a joy I don’t know how I could have lived without. I love our girly mommy daughter dates. Of course, there are lots of great ways to spend time together at home and for free, but sometimes you really want to make things extra special and festive. Here are some of our favorite ways to spend time together when we are heading out on the town!
10 Simple Mother Daughter Dates
The Bookstore. We love walking through and looking at all the books and reading a few, making sure we check out our favorite characters to make sure there is nothing new out!
The Movies. This works out great when my older son has a movie date scheduled with dad and we can go at the same time!
The Mall. A ride on the carousel, a cookie at the food court for a special treat – the mall is a blast!
Dessert. Heading to a gourmet bakery or an ice cream shop once in a while puts a smile on every kids face.
Pedicures. I was surprised at how much fun we had the first time I took her when she was three years old. She loved every minute of it and was so patient.
A Play. We love musicals and finding a play that is based on a story she knows is always fun.
Coffee Shop. Coffee for me and hot chocolate for her – maybe even a muffin to go along for a snack.
Shoe Shopping. Sometimes we don’t even buy anything, but trying on lots of fancy shoes with my girl is so fun.
A Makeup Store. Yes, trying on lip gloss is a little girls dream!
Picnic. Packing a lunch and eating outside on a warm days is a lovely way to reconnect and spend time together.
We got dressed up to have some fun mommy and daughter time in my little girls new favorite dress. It’s the Minnie Mouse Toddler Girl 2-Fer Dress. (She has been refusing to wear anything else for several days.)
