Pretty fingers

J's family came over last Sunday for dinner and I took advantage of having them around to put nail polish on my toes. It's something I don't do often because it's tricky when I have to parent all the time.

So we're sitting outside and Little J comes over while I'm putting on a clear coat (after a month of yellow stained nails this winter, I always use a bottom coat). He's always loved when my nails are painted and asked me to paint his. He wouldn't be detered so I quickly put some clear polish on his nails. He happily went back to riding his bike.

A few minutes later he came back and noticed the dark purple I was now using. Again, he asked for it and wouldn't take no for an answer. He can be very persistent. So for the last week my little boy has been sporting purple nail polish on his fingers.

He loves it and I'm happy he's happy. I'm not going to tell him he can't wear nail polish because he's a boy. If he wants it when he's a bit older and going to school, I'll explain to him that it's not typical for little boys in our society but I won't stop him then either. Let's just hope he's cool enough to pull it off!
