Seriously? She's eight.
It has been awhile though--over a year now. It still confuses me that she'd think we (or at least she) is a spa-type of person. Maybe it's partly my doing because I did bring her there last time. It's probably a little sad that my daughter got a real manicure and pedicure before I ever did. This doesn't just mean that she was like seven and I was over 30. Hers was in the beginning of 2009; mine was a few months ago. She also told me she'd like to get a facial next time she went and began asking me about the purposes behind each step. (I really know nothing about any of this, but sometime I make things up. I think she believes me.)
Anyway since we couldn't figure out anytime to schedule an appointment and since I've been promising her and Addison they could paint their nails for like a month now, we decided to just do it here before school started. Well, kind of.
|The girls with their reading material soaking in their bubbly foot bath...sort of.|
|We don't actually have any cool tubs for pedicures. But I did have a new package of disposable Glade food storage bins so we improvised. Good thing the girls have tiny feet!|
|We have an impressive collection of random old crusty polish colors as well as a few new ones that are mostly empty because they usually get dumped whenever anyone gets them out. Most are the classy .99 cent bottles.|
|Azia shaping her nails. They found these files, and were annoyed I forgot this step, but I don't think they actually know what they are for or what they were attempting to accomplish as they filed away.|
But for a few hours they still felt pampered and excited to get ready for school; that's probably the most important part.
Azia's already planning her facial. She's pretty sure zucchini will work in place of cucumbers for her eyes and since she's noticed we have zucchini to spare so she's ready to go.
