In My Bag

I was putting away the bags of things I purchased at the stores in Minot yesterday. I almost threw away a bag and then noticed there was still something in the bottom. My nail polish! I had picked it up off of an endcap at Target and I was so excited to try it out. Usually I paint my toenails maroon or gray, but blue seemed so fun. So there I was, painting my toenails and minding my own business. Edison walked in and started holding up his feet to me. Edison loves getting his nails cut. If he finds fingernail clippers he will follow me around with them insisting I cut his nails, even if I had just cut them the day before.

I put Edison in his high chair and proceeded to paint his toenails. Alex ran over wondering what we were eating and I said that we weren't eating anything, we were painting our nails! So Alex wanted in on it, too. Alex climbed into his highchair and I painted his nails. I knew Sam wouldn't be happy about it but I enjoy pestering him so I did it anyway.

Sam had to pick up something from a coworker in our complex so he ran home to surprise us and say hi for a minute during lunch. Alex excitedly told him all about his painted toenails. Sam was not amused. I felt really bad for Alex. He was so excited about his good painting job and Sam told him that only girls paint their nails. Poor Alex. Sam is still bitter from the time I painted his fingernails hot pink while he was asleep and he had to go to work the next day with them painted because he didn't know there was a way to get it off.

I told Alex I will paint his nails anytime. Both boys are walking around so carefully, even hours after their nails have dried. Maybe I should paint their toenails more often and our house wouldn't end up ransacked every day.

Haha. That's so funny. I love that Edison begs you to cut his nails. I wish my boys did that!

This is hilarious. I laugh that Sam is so humbug about it. He didn't know you could get polish off?! HAHA

Jeff acts the same way!! I have yet to paint the boys' toenails, but now you've given me the courage!! So cute!

I think it's awesome that they both asked you to paint their nails too.

Also, Edison wanting his nails clipped is way cool. Valette doesn't like her feet touched. She pulls away when I try to get sock fuzz, and the nail clippers are pretty hard too. She will sit perfectly still for Grandma Lara to paint her toes though. She thinks that is amazing.
