One of my favorite things to do with Carrigan is spend mommy daughter time together! I’ve enjoyed doing it since she was born. Some of the things we do together have changed a bit as she’s gotten older, but a lot of them are things we did even when she was just a few months old. With Mother’s Day fresh on my mind, we wanted to share some of our favorite mommy daughter time ideas!
Easy Mommy Daughter Time Ideas
Sometimes we plan special mommy daughter dates that include events or other big outings, but most of our special time together is pretty simple in nature. With a newborn or young baby, going to big activities and events isn’t feasible. But you can still get out of the house together and make some memories. Or you can stay in and focus your time on just the two of you.
If you do go out, one of the most important things to do is to be prepared! That’s one of the things I learned quickly as a mom! Be prepared! We’ve been through a few different diaper bags and backpacks but Carrigan has a huge love for Minnie Mouse, so our new Disney Baby Minnie Mouse Diaper Bag has been going on adventures with us!
Share a Special Movie
Carrigan and I have been spending movie time together since she was very young. In the weeks after she was born, I needed a lot of rest so we would often cuddle together on the couch while Weston was napping and watch a movie together. Don’t hesitate to steal the quiet moments together to just sit down and watch a movie. This is a great way to spend time together, no matter how young or old your daughter is!
Grab a Bite to Eat
Carrigan and I have also been going out to eat since she was young. Of course, when she was tiny, she would often just sleep through lunch while I enjoyed a quite meal while Weston was at school. But as she’s gotten older, she’s started to enjoy going to restaurants and people watching. It was so fun to see her awareness grow and develop while she also got to try new foods!
Shopping with the Girls
Although we often go shopping with everyone, sometimes it’s fun to just hit the stores on a mommy and daughter trip. Carrigan loves when she’s the only one that gets to go to Walmart with me. Maybe it’s not the mall yet but it’s fun to see what catches her eye and maybe buy her a little something special too!
Turn the simple things you need to get done into special time by just taking your daughter with you. Or finding a special treat for you to share together!
Plan a Play Date
Another one of our favorite things to do together is plan play dates with our other friends who have daughters. It’s fun to get together for a girls day, especially if you have a mom friend who has a child the same age as yours. It’s great support when the babies are young and it’s wonderful to watch the girls grow into friends as they get older.
So you can build your friendships as a mom while spending quality time with your daughter! It’s one of the most fulfilling ways to spend time together!
Our Disney Baby Minnie Mouse Diaper Bag from Walmart has been a great addition to our mommy daughter time because of everything we can fit in it. It’s great for going out and about with a toddler but would also be great for those moms with new little ones too!
The diaper bag features:
- Multiple interior and exterior pockets
- Shoulder straps
- Stroller clips
- Changing pad
- Bottle holder
- Pacifier holder
Plus it has Carrigan’s favorite character — Minnie Mouse!
The diaper bag is part of the collection of Disney Baby at Walmart which makes it perfect for Disney lovers of all ages like our family! We’ll be taking it with us on our next Disney trip too! Our trip just happened to include Mother’s Day this year so we made some great mommy daughter time memories there!
