M and I were due for a much needed Girl's Day. She is always asking 'to go somewhere'. Everyday after school...'where are we going?' Home, dear. 'BUT I WANT TO GO SOMEWHERE!'
Keep in mind we run and gun a lot. We are busy. We 'go somewhere' at least 3 times a week. So I knew she would love a girls day--just for me and her--'to go somewhere'!
When she saw me in my dress, she wanted to wear a dress like me, with a necklace like me, and wear her hair like me. I hate to say that surprises me...but sometimes I get so caught up in the day to day grind, that I forget that she is watching me!
We were shopping for an Easter dress for her. I had never taken her to get her nails done, so I knew she would love that. She picked a blue glitter and purple glitter polish. This girl knows what she wants.
We had a good day at the mall!
One of the best moments of the day: we were sitting down to eat our chik-fil-a in the food court, and she casually leaned over to me and gave me a kiss. She said, I love you mommy.
Sigh. Ok. I guess I'm doing ok as a mommy. I haven't scarred her yet.
