Manicures and Pedicures

Tessa, Rob and Becky’s four and a half year old daughter, saw the blue I had painted my toenails and on more than one occasion told me, “I wike yore nails”.  Her mom said it would be OK if I painted her nails that color too so she and I set up a salon ‘nail polish’ date.

As most things are when there are multiple children in a family it became a family event.  toes1

You can’t see it too well here but I painted hearts, polka dots and butterflies on Tessa’s toes.  Drew, 5 1/2 yrs old, painted my toenails (and toes).  He had asked me what the clear coat was for and when I told him it was to help the color stay, he made sure to put a lot of the clear coat on my toenails so that it was last a long time. 


Tessa decided she wanted to paint her own fingernails (she wanted the paint removed after only about 15 minutes) and Braden, 2 1/2 yrs old, wanted to paint my fingernails.  All in all, he did a fabulous job and only got ‘out of the lines’ a couple times!  ;o) Braden was actually upset that he couldn’t paint his nails and was devastated when both daddy and I told him that he couldn’t paint his nails because that was for girls. 

So much fun!  We’ll definitely have to have another salon date!

Hahaha! Ooooh, this warmed my heart. :) I love mani/pedi days with the little ones... Looks like those kids have a future in (wait for it) "digit"-al arts! :D
