Womans Day...

Back in High School Thursday night was Cosby Show night. I remember the episode where Rudy got her . and Claire told her about Woman's Day. A day to celebrate being a woman for the first time. She made popcorn and they snuggled under a warm blanket to watch a movie together. Just the mom and the daughter. I loved that idea and put it in the back of my head for a time when I would need it.

When it was Middle Daughters time for Woman's Day we went to the movies and saw Must Love Dogs. We had chocolate and popcorn. We put our heads together and shared a soda. After, we went to the drugstore and I let her pick out any and all the feminine products she felt she may need and we talked about "stuff". I answered questions, she listened. It was magical and she was the first to bring up Woman's Day when it was out Little Boo-Bears turn.

Last night she was up. We went to the movies to see Enchanted. Perfect Woman's Day movie!! We went to dinner first. To the Outback...which is mucho expensive here and totally a treat. We spent over an hour there. We had dessert.....a gooey chocolaty wonder. When we got to the movies we had perfect seats. She leaned over and put her head on my shoulder through most of the movie. After we sang the song from the movie while we walked the block to the car, much to the amusement of every Korean person downtown. I answered questions last night. She listened. It was magical. Then, since we are the only ones home this weekend (The Capt and The Son are on a ski weekend retreat for the teens at church and Middle Daughter is cheering at an away game) we slept out in living room.
I told her to remember this night and to do it with her own daughters when the time is right.

You know what??? I think she will. :)

I'm glad woman's day went well for you and her. Now, I'm thinking you might need to change her blog name, now that she's a woman and all. I don't have any ideas... but BooBear is so youthful!!! I cannot believe she's "on the other side" now. goodness. ~jen~

That sounds like such a nice way to spend the day. She will remember it and it will mean even more when she has a Woman's Day with her daughter.
