Day 16 – Mother / Daughter Time
Learn the ASL signs for ‘nap’ and ‘manicure’
Today was a very enjoyable day for me personally because I had such nice bonding time with my daughter. While we were out exploring the city we saw a nail salon and I peeked in and saw a mom and daughter having their nails done. I thought this was so cute and I knew that Fireese would love to have this done. She is really into wanting her nails painted now so this would be super fun thing to do with her. While my husband put my son down for a nap I decided to take Fireese to the salon for some mother daughter time. We walked over to the salon from our hotel and Fireese was ecstatic. She picked out her nail polish and sat and chatting with the nail technician the whole time. The woman who was doing my nails was so impressed with the confidence in Fireese and how chatty she was.
It was such a lovely mother daughter time. We chit chatted while our nails were drying and the smile on her face when she showed me her nails and told me how excited she was to show daddy and Harty was enough to melt my heart. The smile of pure joy on your child’s face is what makes parenthood all worth while. On our way home we shared a smoothy and I received the, “you’re the best mom” comment. Great day!
