If you read the comment from Ellen on "D is for Driver and Daughter", you will know that we have a sister in need. Ellen’s daughter is turning 16 in February and she is looking for ideas to help mark this milestone for both mother and daughter in a more cost effective manner than those seen on the OC and 90210 reruns.
I have a few ideas but the combined knowledge of all of you super moms out there should be able to help Ellen out…please add yours in the comment section.
- create a spa day at home: pamper yourself and your daughters with foot soaks, facials, manicures and pedicures….have her invite friends over to do the same
- host a ‘fancy dinner party’ for just you and your family or for a few of her friends. Develop a theme, decorate the table, create menus to put out
- take her to get her learner’s permit for driving first thing in the morning and then find a big wide space to let her drive around before you go out for a girls’ lunch
- play hookey from work and school, go for a lunch that means something to the two of you and a movie in the middle of the day, throw in a mani-pedi at one of the more affordable nail places
Are there things your daughter especially likes, music or books that she is into??? Give us some more details and we will think up even more ideas. Won’t we girls?
