We Got The Cures!

Cadence really likes to put nail polish on her fingers and toes. Unfortunately for her, I am not very good at being feminine and don't own any nail polish (that I can think of.) So when we were at the dollar store, I saw a pack of two nail polishes and bought it. When we got to Grammy's house, she wanted to paint...fingernails and toenails. I was up for the challenge. Everybody like manicures and pedicures.

First, I painted Cadence's nails. She is very good at holding still while I paint. Then she wanted to paint my nails. I see no harm in that. Building confidence and exploring is an important part of growing older.

Even though I was making a funny face, she did a pretty good job of only painting my nails.

She only painted a little part of a few fingers and didn't quite get all the nail, but I think she did well for the first time!The next morning (notice no make up), we decided to paint our toe nails. I painted hers and then she painted mine.

Once again, she did a fairly well job - especially on my left foot.

We love our 'cures. It is fun being a girl...sometimes.

They look professional, don't they?

Now when we stick our feet in the water on our walks, we can do so in style!

I love that you didn't have any nail polish! I guess she is going to turn you into a girly girl. :)

You are a great mom! I don't know that I would have been that daring.

That's awesome that you let her do that to you! I probably would have fixed anything that was a little off right away.
