Cheap Skate
Baby Girl and I headed out for our little Girly Adventure yesterday. I called around to a few nail places to ask about pedicures.... um... $20 was the lowest price. So it would have been $40 for the two of us... and I just couldn't do it! I couldn't spend $40 for something that was going to take 20 minutes. Just call me Ebenezer. So, we changed plans. I told Baby Girl that if she would be really good during her hair cut, then we would buy some polish (that's the only thing she cares about anyway) and go home and paint our toes. It worked. She sat really still, kept her head straight (for the most part) and didn't fuss or cry. I love bribing my kids! We went to one of the little jewelry stores in the mall and found some polish that was buy one get one 50% off. So we bought a few and came home and painted toes! Her's are blue with pink flowers and mine are red with black swirls. I would show you pictures, but, um, I'm no artist! And they don't really look that great... maybe if I perfect my technique, then I'll share some photos!
In other news... Baby Girl had fevers last night, started coughing, and is fairly miserable this morning. Little Bug is coughing, but seems to feel okay. Hubby has a sore throat and seems to feel pretty nasty. I've always been good at sharing... and I love my family enough to share the very best with them! Including all viruses and bacteria. BLAH!

I think that mom-daughter toe painting experience would be more fun anyway ; )

Sorry to hear aobut Baby Girl not feeling well. Hopefully it won't hit everyone else like it hit you.

You're such a fun Mom, doing pedicures. :) I, am not that brave. The last thing I want is an open bottle of nail polish around my 4-year-old, who seems to spill everything, particularly the milk or orange juice or water at mealtime.

Way to be fun!!

I hope the illness in your home will leave quickly, and leave you alone at last! Get better soon, all of you! :)

Here's hoping you get better. And it's true, the only important thing is the nail polish. :) Glad you had a good time!

Sounds like you guys had a great time. I'm glad you were able to do it before she got sick. Isn't it nice that we get to share everything.

I can't believe they would charge a child the same price as an adult. I bet it came out great, though!

I have a friend who gets her pedicures at Walmart ( they are very good about sterilization there) and they paint her daughter's free. then it'd only be $20.00. I'm with you though, I probably couldn'y even do both of us for $20.00
