My mom had some time off work, so she took each of my kids in turn for a special Grandma day. Raisin’s day was Friday; they did a craft project and Raisin got her nails painted. Orange went yesterday; she played with Grandma and got her nails painted. Apple is gone today. Since he has been envious of Orange’s nails since she came home yesterday, I imagine he will get a manicure as well.*
My husband and my father will be thrilled.
I don’t think it’s a big deal — he’s two. But the pleasure of watching Grandpa and Daddy’s discomfort? Oh, I’ll be milking it for a while, I expect.
*My mom told me he even tried to “paint” his nails himself with chalk last night while I was at work.
