Having a daughter means we get the chance to do special “girly” things with her (though I certainly know that not all girls embrace their super-feminine side!)
Having a spa time with your daughter can be a great way to spend time together. We did this one night awhile ago when my husband was out-of-town. My daughters and I gave ourselves manicures and pedicures, then I helped them try out some new hairstyles. We experimented with curls and updo’s. You could also give yourselves facials or let your daughter play with a little makeup.
If your daughter is younger, you could do simple tasks like rubbing on some sweet smelling lotion or just playing dress up. Maybe you have special occasion clothes in your closet that she could try on. And she might have even more fun if you let her do your hair!
This activity doesn’t have to be a “day” – it could just be a half hour, or done in short spurts over several days. Either way, be sure to take pictures to document the memories!
