Mommy and Me

With two busy girls, it's hard to find one-on-one time with my kiddos.  We are together all the time, but there's something about being the "only" kid that makes kids feel special.  My mother in law asked if she could take one girl at a time for the day and it was a great way for me to have some Mommy and Me time with the girls.

Sophia was first up and her day started with a necessary haircut. She was as good as gold during her cut and got a sucker, which made her whole day. We had to run to the store really quick after her haircut and she got to show off her new haircut.
I asked her what she wanted to do and she asked to play with the water table and have a picnic, so that's just what we did. She loved having the water table all to herself, without having to share the toys that are in high demand. We had a picnic lunch outside and she was as happy as a clam.

Emma's day was not as relaxing. There was no staying home for that girl! She asked if we could see a movie, but nothing appropriate was playing for her age. Instead, we went to a local bounce house for their free play time. She normally doesn't do too well with the big ones, but she tried every single one of them. I was so proud of how brave she was. So brave, in fact, that she banned me from playing with her, claiming that she was a big girl and could do it on her own. She failed to realize that Mama was having fun too. ;)

After playing, we had lunch at her restaurant of choice, which was, of course, Chick-fil-A.  She told everyone that she was having a special day. She was thrilled to get lemonade and ice cream with her meal. What a treat!

After lunch, we headed to the library to get her first library card. I hope this is the start of a lifetime love for reading.

The library was having a special zoo program and there were a few animals for the kids to see and touch. They got to see a turtle, rabbit, and tarantula. Emma was excited to touch the rabbit and was fascinated with the tarantula (yikes!). The tarantula was not for touching though, thank goodness.

I have loved being able to spend some alone time with my girls and have loved each special day with them. 
Mimi, thank you for the chance to make memories with these sweet girls!
