I enjoy seeing how Mom has embraced the value of scheduling things that are important to her. As you know, she has scheduled reading time with her grandchildren, play time with them, weekly lunch and grocery shopping with GiGi, etc.
Mom invited us girls for a day out, and because of how crazy and complicated our schedules were, we scheduled it over a
We got supplies for our caroling treats at Hobby Lobby, ate lunch out, and enjoyed shopping at Eddie Bauer, Home Goods, and Carters (our outlet shopping center is great!). I’m grateful for a loving, close-knit family.
For you moms, how about starting to schedule specific time with your girls? Those relationships are some of the most important in all the world!
“Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an
example of the believers, in word, in conversation,
in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.”

My girls are only 5 and 7 (of 5 total children), but I try to do small things when I can to uplift them. My 5 year old ALWAYS wants to go get groceries with me, so I try and make it a solo trip with her on the weekends. My older daughter loves to draw, and she will show me what she’s been working on throughout the day, and we will display them in her room. I’m glad for any chance to spend time with them individually and can’t wait to see that manifest as they get older!
Those are very sweet moments to capture for individual time with your children.
You are all so fortunate and blessed.
Yes, we are.
I agree, it’s so important. Life can be very busy at times, but my 3 year old daughter absolutely loves her dates with me, be it trips to the supermarket or a cake date at the local farm shop. I must admit, even now, as a wife and mother of a pre-schooler, I love spending quality time with my own mum!
Love your heart and investment in special time with your children and your mom as well. Thank you for sharing, Claire!
My daughter is a pre-med major in college, so we always plan at least a day of fun shopping together over her breaks.We also drive out of state for her college cross country meets. I feel it is just as important to have time with my sons. Since both of them are competitive swimmers, talking on the drive to swim meets, volunteering to help out at the meets and going to all of them as a family unit shows all of our kids our support of their personal interests.
Sounds like some great mother-daughter time and family time.
Since I have one child left at home and Daddy works/travels quite often, she and I are attached most often. Knowing from experience that this time is fleeting, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Blessings to all of the Maxwell ladies.
That’s a great attitude, J.
Yes!! I’m an “in-the-trenches” young mom and really enjoy regular time with my three-year-old daughter, my mom, and my mother-in-law (often all at the same time)! We are all so blessed by these moments.
I love that!
This is such precious time and I love seeing mom and daughter outings. I remember those days with my mom and already enjoy sweet times with my baby girl. You ladies look lovely.
Thank you, Dessiree. You have the memories of your time with your mom to spur you on in your time with your little girl.
My daughters are 16 and 18 and lately I have had the opportunity to spend lots of time with each separately. We grew up homeschooling so time together was never an issue, but time where we pushed aside schooling and focused on enjoying each other’s company was something we had to work to create. I love this stage of life. You will never regret the time you invest in the relationships with your children.
Great encouragement, Jessica. Thank you.
Aw that’s sweet. My mom takes me shopping and out to eat sometimes, and sometimes Joyanna comes too. It’s fun girl time.
I expect it is a treat for Joyanna to be included with you and Mom!
