Date Box

One of Hailey's gift from Mike and I was a Date Box. We've noticed that she needs more 1-on-1 time with us. Not sure why we're guessing it's due to her being the middle child. ? So to fill that need we made this gift. That red box in the back is filled with dates with either dad or mom.
So it goes something like....

Dates with Dad                              Dates with Mom
*go on nature hike                         * go shopping for new outfit
*movie night                                  * do a craft together
*go to breakfast                             * shop and cook a recipe of your choice
*wood working project                  * dinner at a resturant
*your choice                                 * your choice
                         ..... and many more

So tonight we sat down and picked out which month,day, and date she wanted. She has her own calendar that she'll keep in her room so she can countdown to her next date night each month.

But she also jumped on the fact that Mike was home for another day so she scheduled her first date with Mike to go on a nature hike with him. I know....a winter hike. (freezing) It's fine though. They enjoyed themselves. He took her up a trail we went to during the summer (here) and sat on the bench and chatted for alittle bit. Despite the 1-2 feet of snow she came back glowing knowing she got some 1-on-1 time with Mike.

So we hope these guaranteed dates along with her weekly time on her day will help her cup runneth over.
