A Date with My Daughter

Cara and I went on a rare mother-daughter outing today. I needed to get some party thank you cards made and wanted to look through the Christmas things that were just put out at Target. Ahhhh Target. That place is just amazing. How did I ever survive without that store?

Cara was simply adorable as we browsed the toy aisles. A confession here...my kids have each only been in a store probably 5 times a piece, maybe less. She had no recollection of a toy aisle and to her, it was heaven on earth. She was so sweet about it though...she got onto her knees in the cart and just said things like, "Oh Mommy, look at that!" and "That is so wonderful!" She didn't want to leave the toy department, but luckily the Christmas tree displays were just down the way. We went to lunch at Applebees and just had a wonderful time. I love enjoying my kids one at time.

Tonight I had another great MOPS meeting! And after I got to go out with a few amazing friends. Now it's 11pm and I feel old and tired, but it was worth it:)


  1. One on one time is great. I remember the joy my girls showed whenever we went to the department store at holiday time. Just wait til the day when they write their own Christmas list. And the letters to Santa, so wonderful to read and enjoy. Prayers continue for you and yours.

  2. I was feeling old last night too! Glad you were able to enjoy Miss Cara. Take care and God Bless you and your family! Heather

  3. Sounds like a wonderful day!!! I spend way too much time at Target, love that store.

  4. Girl time! How fun!! :o) Cara is a dolly.
