Manicure Monday

My girls are obsessed with having their nails painted. (Well, really just nail polish in general. I have to hide it.) Yesterday, I told Sophie we would paint her nails for church, but, surprise surprise, we ran out of time. I kept putting her off all day, trying to get stuff done. (Housework had been neglected in favor of finishing Easter dresses.)

Last night about midnight she wakes up screaming. Jeff gets up with her. When he gets back, he asks me, "Um, did you promise Sophie you would paint her nails?" I told you, she's obsessed.

This morning, Jeff had the day off and was eating breakfast with the girls. I am feeding Eliza when Sophie asks me again to please paint her nails. As soon as I am finished, I promise.

Evidently, she doesn't trust me. 10 minutes later she comes in with one hand and foot painted red, one hand and foot painted pink. Mads too. Just the way they like it.

Their daddy is the best.

I wonder where they get that. I always remember you doing your nails right before bed in college and being so mad when you had sheet marks!!!

Brian, Jamie, Molly & Sarah said...

Ah, your Jeff is just the best!! Brian right now is covering up booboos with bandaids. The box of 20 is probably gone by now! Thank goodness for daddy's!

This is a cute story. You'll be so glad to have a written record of it someday. I wish blogs had been around when mine were toddlers!

Hope you'll come by Tuesday and join in the "Ten Things" again. I have a really cool new button to add to your sidebar or "Ten Things" blog entries!

That is hilarious! It's nice to know I'm not the only procrastinator of promises to my child out there! I keep my promises but they may come 3 days later!

Every girl likes a good manicure! Sophie has good taste. :)

Glad you are recording these stories to share with your girls as they grow up!

Awww.. this made me a little teary eyed. I'm the oldest of three girls, and our dad always did sweet things like that for us. Still does, only now it usually entails him checking the air and tread of my tires. :)

You are so funny....I just painted my own nails this weekend for the first time in I don't know how long....Jeff rocks for doing that...I wonder if I can con Aaron into that before church on Sunday??

Hey Danna! I found your blog! I would love to invite you to my blog but somehow I need to get your email address to do that. Does Jenny have it? Love getting to see pictures of the girls.
