Not too long ago Mili saw me changing socks or my bare feet after getting out of bed (I wear socks all day long in the winter time so she hasn't paid very much attention to my feet before). She saw remnants of my pink toe nail polish. She said, "Mommy, I want my toes pink too." Ever since then she has been asking me to paint her toe nails. I kept telling her that it had to be warm enough outside to sit on the balcony and paint them (really I think that painted toe nails means she is not a baby anymore so I was stalling as long as possible :)
Mili asked me again the other day so I knew it was still on her mind. So yesterday when it was sunny and 70 degrees by noon I thought I'd better take the opportunity to paint those sweet toes that used to be so small (not anymore, bigfoot).
When I went to bathe Mili last night she said, "No, Mommy I don't want to get in the bathtub, it will wash off my pink." I had to explain to her that it was permanent but she still doesn't quite get that part. She never took her eyes off her toes the entire time she was in the bathtub. When we got out of the tub she said, "Mommy, the pink is still on, it not comed off."
She picked out the color herself. She likes bright, bold colors that make a statement like someone else I know :)
