Trying to get caught up on my blog after a two month hiatus. Here's a photo from when I hosted a girls night for some of the teens in my life at the time. We went out to eat at Old Chicago pizza and then played a board game, ate too much junk food, laughed ourselves silly, and watched a chick flick. It was a really great opportunity to shuck the disciplinarian mom role and develop friendships with "my girls".
We included Danya in the event because she is about to join the ranks of "tweens" and Daniel and I thought it would be good to let her experience hanging out with older girls in a secure environment. A little positive role model influence, you might say.
