My girls are not really girly girls. Sure they like their princess¬† glasses and jammies as much as the next girl, but they also love to climb, get dirty, play with trucks and even soak themselves in lighter fluid. (Did I forget to write that post?!) So when my mom mentioned the idea of painting their nails I said there was no way it would happen. They wouldn’t sit still long enough to paint them, let alone let it dry. But one day Wyatt was sleeping and I needed to clip nails. Alyssa sat on a little stool in the kitchen and it just was perfect for pedicures. So I asked if they wanted one. I know they had no idea what they were agreeing to, but they thought it sounded like fun. I did the whole thing. Washed their feet, used a nice body scrub, a little baby oil rubbed up to their knees, and even let them each pick their own color. Kylie was a bit disappointed when I didn’t have blue on hand, but settled for a pink with sparkles. Here is how it went.

And they actually let them dry! They stayed in the kitchen (to avoid paint on the carpet) and didn’t touch their nails- even long after I told them they could. They are still asking me not to mess up their nails when I wash their feet. I think we will be doing this again often.
