Yesterday was a fabulous day! I hate to admit it, but it has been forever since I was able to just go shopping with one of my girls without a “reason.” Normally that reason is a birthday gift for a party they are attending. And lets face it, the boys don’t really like to shop. Well, I was on the hunt for white candy for Young Womens and decided to have Daylyn go along with me. We had a blast! We found the candy, Wintergreen LifeSavers, and then we went to the Mall. We found ornaments for us and my Mom’s tree for next year at Target, had a yummy chocolate at See’s, and found a sweater for Daylyn and Tyler at Old Navy. While we were there, Daylyn ran over to a post to see how big she was, and I just had to snap a picture. I can’t believe how tall she is getting!
After the Mall, we went to the Ram’s for dinner, which is Daylyn’s favorite restaurant because she loves their grilled cheese sandwiches. It was wonderful to just spend the time with her. We used to take the kids on monthly dates and as life got busier, we got out of the habit. I think we are going to have to start those dates again. She loved it, I did, and I know that the kids will all benefit from spending one-on-one time with mom or dad.
