a road trip? soon….

My Lili is now 6 years old.  Man has the time flown.  She is discovering and learning so much every single day.  I’ve never felt so close to her but at times have never felt so far away.  With the hustle and bustle of our life, I feel that sometimes I look to her as my little helper than I do my oldest daughter.  She is so incredibly amazing and I feel that sometimes I overlook the amazing qualities that God has blessed her with.  She is so mature and can do so much, I’m convinced that she could run my house at 6 years old if I gave her half the chance.  She is such a blessing to me.

I was talking with my Mom and husband, on two separate occasions, and asked their thoughts on me spending some one-on-one time with her. They were both in agreement, immediate agreement. I feel that it is needed right now.  I don’t want to be her “buddy” but I do want an outstanding relationship with my daughter so that she knows she can tell me anything and everything.  Right now I feel she doesn’t feel that way.

I feel like I’m saying, maybe later…just a sec…hold on a minute…help me with this, that and the other thing.  I want to bring back the childlike attitude in her.  And I feel she is pretty resentful right now.  I may just be making this up in my head, but on the chance that I am not, I want to take action now.

We need a night or two away.  Just her and I.  I know that I could go the easy route and just do a day somewhere…but I want to do something special. Something a little more “over the top” in her book. Do you have any fantastic ideas?  I’m thinking about Chicago…or something fun like that that will instill an “awe” factor in her.  And remind her that I can be cool when I don’t have a million things going on in my brain, and that I LOVE HER to no ends and think she is so special!!!

Tell me…what do you think?  Thanks!

    I think this is a normal mother-eldest child thing as I’ve felt the same way many (many) times as well. Excited to hear what you decide to go do!

      I’m trying to think of something local. If you find anything, let me know!

    I would LOVE to take Piper to Chicago. I think I might make it happen this Fall.

      That’s probably when I would do something. Life has just been so busy. We shall see! 🙂
