When my older two girls were younger (like 8 and 5), my husband was doing a lot of hunting and taking the boy with him. He felt bad about that so we planned an evening where he took the older two girls to dinner and Disney on Ice. We have been talking about him doing something similar with Beanie, but nothing has really sparked his interest. Until this year.
The Children's Theater in Minneapolis is doing the play A Christmas Story, which is right up both of their alley. So, I picked Beanie up a little early from school, brought her home to get changed then took her to meet Daddy for "dinner and a show".
Here's my baby as she left the house (do pause and admire the floors):
