Today was the first Mom date. Olivia and I went out to breakfast at Persey's Place. It was her suggestion.
I ended up leaving the Mom date coupons blank for this reason. I wanted to leave it open and their choice.
The part that was cool was the conversation.
We have a project going on to make sort of Inspiration Boards so we used our time to plan where she wanted to hang hers and what she wanted to do with it. Yesterday She found a frame she liked and we painted the glass with chalk board paint and reframed it. She loves it and has written in it many times today.
It is easy to get caught up in daily life-homework, meals, work, cleaning, laundry, manners, life lessons and you don't get to just listen to them.
I hope this helps. I am trying.
