Our house is split 50/50 between the guys and girls. We love enjoying our family time together, of course, but sometimes it’s nice to have a little one on one time with my daughter while my son and husband enjoy their guy time. We love doing things together, but our kids don’t share the same interest, and neither do my husband and I. My daughter isn’t into baseball or the scientific experiments that my husband and son both enjoy so much. On the other end of the spectrum, my son can’t stand playing dress up or creating a fun world with the dolls like my daughter loves to do. Luckily for her, I don’t mind those types of things one bit!
That’s why every once in awhile we have our own mommy/daughter day where it’s just us having a ball caught up in our own little world. Like anything else, mommy daughter time is funniest when we invite a few of our favorite friends! Our most recent guest to mommy/daughter day is one of my daughter’s favorites… Minnie Mouse! To kick it off, we headed to Walmart to purchase a few Disney Jr. Minnie Mouse items to make this day fun! The first thing we did was purchase something to spruce up her bedroom and help her to feel like the princess she is! She picked out the Disney Minnie Mouse Dot are the New Black Twin/Full Bedding.
This turned out to be a win win for the both of us. She immediately fell in love with the beautiful design and bright vibrant colors. I was mostly excited that the affordable price allowed us to pick up even more fun Disney things! What I love most about Disney is the magic behind the brand. It’s crazy that even after all these years, they are still able to bring that magic into the life of a little girl, just like they did when I was a little girl. When I see my daughter’s eyes light up with excitement over her favorite Disney characters, I see myself as a little girl! She’s truly my “MinnieMe”. These moments give us an awesome connection that I pray will carry over well into her teenage and adult years. For now, however, It’s such a nice and well needed break from adulting to get to see the Disney magic through the eyes of a toddler!
Since summer is right around the corner, we made sure to grab a Disney Minnie Mouse Bows and Dots Beach Towel that she’s eager to show off around the pool this summer. Last but not least, no mommy/daughter day is complete without a little dress up. We grabbed a Minnie Mouse Toddler Girl 2-Fer DressMinnie Mouse dress that is just perfect for this! I love that we were able to include the shopping into our mommy/daughter date, and make it a completely magical day from beginning to end! After hours and hours of playing dress up and other pretend games, she used her Minnie Mouse towel to dry off after bath time, and threw on fresh jammies to climb into bed on her new comforter and sheets. The moment when she told me that it had been the “best day ever” … well, that was the magical moment for me! What’s your idea of a fun mommy/daughter day? Drop a comment below!
