TODAY! "Snaps of my big Girl's day out with Mom"

Downtown with Dahlia 103

Lunch - downtown Montreal with my Big Girl.

So.....I ordered a Caesar Salad and offered "a bite" to Dahlia. Never wanting to try something new she resisted....and then gave in.

I didn't get my salad back. She loved it.

Downtown with Dahlia 109
Yes, I sacrificed my longing for those croutons and creamy dressing. I'm a Mother. I ate yesterday, right? (wink, wink)

She shared a bit with me while diving into her fries. (Wha'...? You don't order fries with your tortellini in your corner of the world?)

What a great day with your daughter!!!
I would LOVE tortellini and fries any day!!! She knows how to eat and to start it off with a caesar salad...FABULOUS!!!

I'm glad you got to snag a fry or two Mom! =)

Such a lovely time! The pictures are beautiful! I just did the Blogger2Print book for my first part of blogging and it is a super journal for my daughter when she gets older. You should do it! It immedately creates a book out of your blog! A really special keepsake! Have a great night!

I am ridiculously drawn with delight to your little slice of life and corner of the world!!!

How tickled I am that you had another fabulous day out with your "big girl" despite having to sacrifice that salad! :) Oh the things we Mamas do!! LOL I hope the chocolate helped ease the pain! ;)

Lovely ( and chic!) photos of your lovely love!!!

Isn't it great going on 'dates' with our kids? More of these coming up for sure!

Tortellini is the pasta of choice for J, too.

Those houses with the steps --I don't know what you call those, --remind me of the B&B we stayed at in St. Denis when were in Montreal. =)

Wanda said...

Bmama - those steps are very typical of Montreal. This was Crescent Street not too far from St. Denis - but they're all over here. Same type of actual structure as you might find in NYC but there - the stairs on inside of the front door. I must do a little sleuthing to find out why this is so here.

Btw. when you come back to Montreal - you call me first.....'k?

Buckeroomama said...

I'll definitely let you know if I ever head out to Montreal again. The last time I was there, I was there with a good friend from high school who was getting his MBA at McGill.

Beautiful photos Wanda!!!

What fun you both must have had. I really need to do this with my daughter soon. I love the fact that Dahlia finally tried your salad and "loved" it. My girl would have turned her face at it, like she does with most new foods I try to have her taste. Now if she was in that chocolatier, she would have tried every single item that was for sale. :-)

Guess who I'm going to see this weekend... I can't wait!

What a great Mommy & Me day! And how great that she enjoys trying new things. I hope you didn't tell her about the anchovies though! When Dita told me that, it almost ruined Caesar Salads for me....almost!

Tortelini and french fries! That sounds about PERFECT! I love it! And I ADORE the chocolate shop. Yum! Your pictures are so pretty. I feel like I was right there with you and your baby!

jen@odbt said...

Yum - it all looks so good. Your daughter is beautiful. I love "dates" with my much fun!!!

Dita said...

OH to have been there that afternoon with you two lovelies....its such a tease now that I've been there....I feel like I just want to pop right over and snuggle in with you gals and do all the Wonderfully Wanda things you do!

I miss you all like mad!
