My lil’ Ms. JG & I try to do Fridates as often as we can because we’re all pooped out on weekdays when there’s school and work. Most of the time, we find ourselves on automatic mode from Monday to Friday. Sleep early- wake up early- prepare for school- prepare for work- workout- errands- pick up kids from school- eat- chores- work- eat- sleep early- repeat. It’s a cycle we’ve gotten used to. So to break our routine, I promise my lil’ Ms. JG that we’ll do Fridates as our way to reward ourselves and do some girl bonding.
When lil’ Mr. JG is a little bit older (a year or two from now) I’ll dedicate a day for him too so we can do mom-son dates as well.
I was once not a fan of mom-daughter matchy-matchy. Why? Because I don’t want my daughter to be my shadow. Feeling ko kasi when we wear exactly the same thing, she needs to live up or level up to me, e that’s not what I want. I want her to let her personality shine. So to compromise, I make sure every time we do matchy-matchy, we’re not exactly the same. Just similar, not identical.
I honestly am fond of this lil’ lady and no, not because she’s my daughter (although it’s partly the reason hihi) but because she picks her own clothes and knows what she wants – unlike her mom who’s very indecisive up to this day. Heehee.
Visit the newly renovated MANGO Eastwood store, they now carry MANGO Kids. Yay!
