Mother's and Daughter's At Home!

My friend Dee Ann alerted us and Rachel has posted about it and now I'm joining in! Graceful Girlhood has set up something I'm really excited about. Mother's and Daughter's at Home is a special time for Mother's and their daughters to spend time together doing things they enjoy. It's the first Friday of every month.

I decided to participate because my daughter and I really don't spend much time together alone now. She will be ten in June and I'm starting to feel that my time with her is slipping away! I really want her to have memories of us doing things together. And I hope that there will be things that we enjoy doing together all our lives! I know that when I am with my own mother it is as if I'm with my perfect friend. We like the same things and we enjoy just sitting and talking together. Many times we will plan to watch movies only to spend the evening just chatting. I hope that some day my own daughter feels the same way about me.

The Author of the Graceful Girlhood blog says, "The most important thing is that relationships between mothers and their daughters are being strengthened. " And I feel that this alone is reason enough to committ to this challenge. But I am excited that afterwards, the participants will be posting about what they did with their daughters. Sounds like a great way to get some ideas for Mother/daughter times.

My daughter is nine and she and I enjoy cooking together. We also enjoy looking at magazines, or old buttons, or doing crafts together. We like shopping together or having tea and some wonderful dessert. So we may on our first night spend time cooking something my daughter wants to try and eating it! Or perhaps I'll ask her what she would like to do. Whatever it is I'll let you know!

I think that sounds lika a great idea. Hope that you and your daughter are going to have a lot of fun on those special days.

Thank you for your nice comment. Good luck with the baking. I used ordinary bread tins (about 25-30 cm long and 8-10 cm wide?) and I cut them into three layers (top to botten).

love Poppins
