Now that our daughter is three we thought it was time to start date nights with her! Recently, we both noticed Izzy thrives when she has some one-on-one attention. Although she transitioned well when IJ was born, I think it’s beneficial for her to get quality one-on-one time with mom and dad. So once a month Izzy has a date with daddy and on a separate night a date with mommy. Today I am sharing some fun indoor and outdoor mother daughter date ideas.
It doesn’t need to be anything fancy. It’s more about no distractions and quality time together!
Thank you TOMS for sponsoring this conversation.

As part of our first mommy daughter date night Izzy and I wore matching shoes. She was so excited to have shoes “just like mommy.” You are probably familiar with TOMS one for one model.
Well they recently launched a Where We Give collection and they are celebrating a different country each season. I love how these shoes come with a story. We can teach our daughter about kindness and giving to others while exposing her to other cultures and countries. Each style is inspired by a region where TOMS gives shoes.
How adorable are these llama print shoes? The Peru style is in natural burlap for moms and colorful canvas for kids. Is it just me or are mommy and me outfits too cute!?
I’d love to hear from you. How do you bond with your daughter? Do you go on mommy and me dates? Dress in mommy and me outfits? Tell us your favorite ways to connect in the comments below!
