Mommy-Daughter Date

Charlotte and I had a fun Mommy-Daughter date this morning at a local park. The Junior League of Lakeland sponsored a reading event and invited us to come and do crafts focused on different countries so that Charlotte could earn a free book.

She made a crown fit for a princess in the England tent. After I peeled the back off, I let her put the stickers on wherever she wanted (except for her initials and the circles, I did those).
We also got to hang out with Plato the Publixaurus. I was surprised that she liked him and reached out since when we were at Disney, she freaked out when she saw the stuffed characters.
There was also a nice clown making balloon animals and of course Charlotte had to get a dog. She loved it to death until it came undone and then it became an orange snake.
We also watched a concert by local musician Jack Hartmann. Charlotte had fun movin' and groovin' to his tunes. I could have shared several minutes of her dancing, but below is less than 30 seconds for everyone to enjoy. At one point, he asked for some children to come up and demonstrate dance moves. Charlotte was the first one on the stage! Like mother, like daughter!


  1. She is just loving the song! Looks like a fun morning!

  2. I just love little ones dancing. She is a cutie!
