I got a pedicure a couple of weeks ago - it still looked good, so I didn't think I'd need another one before I went into labor. Yesterday, however, I stubbed one of my toes and all of the polish came off. Ugh. The one thing that can look good during labor - your toes. So, since baby brother is still "nice and floaty" I took the opportunity to get a pedicure today. I took my little buddy along with me.
I had heard of a nail salon in Toco Hills that had little kid's chairs for pedicures. So, I asked Charlotte if she wanted to go get her nails painted with me. She was pretty excited about it.
We walked in and picked out our colors. Despite my best attempts to get her to choose something non-neon, she picked neon orange.
They put her in the little chair that looked like a teddy bear and turned on a movie for her to watch. Then, I sat in the chair next to her.
She was SO GOOD! She sat there super still the entire time her toes and nails were painted. She loved soaking her feet in the water and having lotion rubbed on her legs. They only had to repaint one of her thumb nails - I thought that was pretty good for a 2.5 year old.
I love this little girl more than words can say. I am so happy we had this special time together today and I look forward to many more manicures and pedicures with her.
