Mummy-Daughter Date Ideas
Even though I spend most of my days with Ellie since I’m a stay-at-home Mum, I find that when I’m intentional about the activities we do together, it becomes so much more purposeful. It helps me take ownership of the time that I get to spend with her and to carefully pray over each day’s activity. Of course, we have a ton of unstructured playtime too, so finding a good balance is the key.
