|Talia & I with our Dessert|
A couple of months ago, I took Katrina on a swim date. She had been talking about going swimming at a local public pool for quite some time, so we found out when their public swim times were and we made it happen! It was really nice to do that with her and to have that one-on-one time! She practiced her swimming and diving and I helped her out. She came up with her own system for putting her arm up if she felt she needed my help to get above water and it worked really well- we were quite a team! ;) We took a quarter with us to get a treat from the vending machine when we were finished, only to find that the machines had been removed! So, we drove to the closest Walmart and bought a treat there. :)
Most recently, it was my turn to take Talia out on a date, and I took her to Applebee's for dinner (kids eat free on Wednesdays) and dessert. I took her there once before and she really liked it, so requested to go back again this time! I love introducing her to some of my favourite places to eat (food or dessert) and sharing that fun with her! On our way home, we stopped at a few stores and found her some new sandals and pajamas. :) Meanwhile Ken and Katrina had walked to a fast food place near our home for their dinner date. In the evening, Ken shared with me some of the funny conversation they had during their walk. :)
This has been such a fun tradition to start with our kids!
Do you do things like this with your kids?
I'd love to know what your favourite Mommy or Daddy Daughter dates have been!
