Empowering Girls: Mommy/Daughter Day Report
You’re always ignoring me. It’s inappropriate. It hurts my feelings and it makes me sad and mad. You should listen to me when I talk to you, Ainsley informed me during our Mommy/Daughter Day on Saturday.
You’re right. I’m sorry. You have a valid point and you have right to expect my attention. I was thinking about my work. It’s hard for me to stay in the present moment. My mind wanders. I was writing in my head. It’s terrible habit, I explained.
I don’t have that habit, she said.
You’re lucky, I told her. You never daydream? I asked.
I have. But it’s easy to stop, she said.
I’ll try harder. Thanks for being patient with me. I love you, I said.
I love you too, she said.
I tried my best to stay focused and only had ask her forgiveness a few times.
We went garage saling and window shopping.
We went out for Chinese food.
She got her Orange Belt in Taekwondo. She forgot her jacket. She was brave. I was proud.
We went to McDonalds.
We went walking at the big park and ate handfuls of wild blackberries we found by the pond.
We came home and colored poster-sized kittens and puppies with fresh markers on the trampoline.
She said it was her favorite day and I thought it was awesome too.
