Faith’s Big Day!

This past weekend John & I decided to take Faith on a “date” by herself.  No longer being an only child means you get less of mommy & daddy’s time, so I wanted to do something special that she would love 🙂

After much debate on what to do, we decided to take her to see a movie. Winnie the Pooh to be exact. If you know my oldest daughter at all, you know she is a die-hard Dora the Explorer fan. Unfortunately for her, Dora wasn’t on the big screen this weekend. We weren’t sure what she would think of this yellow bear with his pot of “huny,” so we decided to do a little prep…

We read lots of Winnie the Pooh books.

We played Winnie the Pooh “video games,” on her Little Leap player.

Finally, the big day arrived. We dropped Zoe off at Nana’s house, and off we went. Loaded down with popcorn, drinks, & “yummy” bears (i.e., gummy bears!) we were set. Faith had her coolest gear on…

I’m happy to report her first animated film was a success! We made it through the entire thing, and she still remembers that “Eeyore lost his tail.” Sorry to any of you Pooh fans if I ruined the plot 😉

After the movie, we made a trip to our favorite store…Target!  We picked out LOTS of new “big-girl panties,” for our new undertaking–potty-training! Yes, starting this Wednesday we are beginning some hard-core potty-training. Say a little prayer for me 😉

Of course, no trip would be complete without something fun to take home. We picked out Play-dough, and our first go-around with it was a SUCCESS!

We had a great time hanging out with our big girl, and letting her be “only child” for the day.


Our girls were definitely glad to be reunited that evening! In celebration, we busted out matching Dora jammies…
