She LOVES the color pink, I'm not a fan.
She LIKES jewelry, I forget to wear it.
She LIKES cats, I like dogs.
She's a girlie girl, and I'm, well, not.
But, just being different isn't the reason, well not the main one. She has been having trouble obeying...specifically telling the truth. We have dealt with this issue a few times and I seriously thought she figured out that telling the truth was so much better than sipping vinegar. Guess she's forgotten.
So, Plan B
This morning we had our first....just the two of us. It wasn't anything spectacular or grand. It was breakfast at 7-11. Yes, you read right 7-11...
We sat outside under the umbrella tables. She with her chocolate covered doughnut and strawberry yogurt. Me with my "xiao bing" (Chinese pastry) and latte.
We talked about school and her friends.
She daydreamed about a princess and prince marrying....which she told me was me and Uwe (ok, that was cute).
Today was better....really good. Maybe she is just getting to that age where she needs special time with her mom. She is the youngest and her sister has special needs, which requires more attention. So, I think that we will be having Mother/Daughter Dates more often. Maybe once a month...time where we just get to hang out and talk. I'm sure as she gets older I will come to really appreciate these times together....just the two of us.
For those of you who are mothers to daughters....do you do anything like this? For those of you that are daughters.....did you have times like this with your mom?
