Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is "Nails Polished By Someone Else". This was totally fun! For my manicure, I recruited my oldest son (who is 9) to paint my nails. Now this is something I never thought was possible- I am the mother of all boys, and even though I wouldn't have it any other way, there was always a tiny part of me that couldn't believe I wouldn't have a little "mini me" sitting by my side, doing our nails together (sigh....ya, because I'm sure all you mothers of girls just sit around doing this all day long, right?? Well you do in my head!). This Twinsie project opened up a funny interaction between Liam & I. I said, "Hey, come sit at the table. I need you to do something". He plopped down and asked, "what?". "Paint my nails". I handed him the bottle. The most gigantic, adorable, crooked smile flashed across his face. "Really?!" he asked.
Here's his work. One dabbed on layer of Essie She's Picture Perfect:
He did a super job considering this was his first time ever holding a nail polish brush! The name of the polish is great because although it's not a "picture perfect" paint job, the giggles and conversation we had doing this together were pretty perfect ;-)
