Any Activity Can Mean Some Vital Quality Time For Parent And Children
A tea party is a great way for a mom and her children to spend some quality time together. While the tea party itself is going to be fun and memorable for both parent and child it is the action of being a part of a child's life that is the most vital part. Which activity you undertake does not matter but taking that action to do things together does. It is the quality time together that allows mom and child to really bond, communicate and grow more understanding of each other. The time spent with younger children can also see moms being able to witness many of the important milestones they cross at different ages.
A good way to spend some time with a daughter is if she reaches that age, that many seem to, of wanting to dress like their mommy. This will often start with trying a few of your clothes on and before long leads to pulling everything out of a closet to wear, often with the addition of shoes and makeup. This can be a lot of fun for both mom and daughter and will certainly create many laughs and good photo opportunities.
Although it will be a lot of fun and another good way to bond there will be better ways to implement a little girls need to look like her mom. One of the limitations of wearing her mommy's clothes are that the size will be nowhere near correct which restricts their wear to the home. A better idea would be to purchase a piece of clothing from the mommy and me range. This is where a mommy and me tea party dress could double up and satisfy a girls need to look like her mother. In this way she will be wearing something that fits and mom will be able to wear hers at the same time in a true twinning style.
