Toe-tally Adorable

Briar spied a small bottle of nail polish the other day. Just beneath the cap was a rhinestone. It was love at first sight and, as the name of the color was "Pink Promise," when she asked, blue eyes wide with hope, if I would paint her nails, I agreed. We have a long history of polish remorse. Briar generally regrets the painting and has a visceral need to have the offending artificial color erased immediately, so desperate to remove it she usually wipes her hands on the nearest thing before I can get to the remover.

I set about painting her nails, no easy feat (hahaha) with the ampleness of my belly, but we made it through. She has spent the last 24 hours calling out to strangers and friends alike, "Hey, have you seen my twinkly, sparkly princess finger nails? I got my toes like it too! Wanna see?"

I send out a special thanks to all the people of our fine city who have marveled at her pink promise twinkleocity.

They both look so much like you, your girls.

The Poo loves her a mani-pedi. We often do it when she is feeling unwell. Nothing like a little pampering to cheer a girl up, no?

Nothing like pretty nails to make a girl feel special! My daughter is the same way.

What a beautiful moment you guys captured... I hope she likes the color this time :)

I always get polish remorse myself. And mascara remorse. But dang if I'm not really looking forward to Anna being old enough so I can paint her nails. I remember the luxurious joy of having my nails done when I was a little girl.

Little girls with pink toe nails are probably the cutest thing EVER.

Awwww...this is exactly what I want to read as I recover from the flu - about adorable little girls enjoying their pink sparkle nail polish! I love it!

Amy said...

This is so wicked cute! Pink toes are the best sign of spring. She is the best.

Oh! Something you can't do with a boy. So sweet.

Janet said...

Also delish. (I shouldn't comment on blogs after midnight. Can't. Remember. Any. Big. Words.)

Lisa said...

So sweet! My girls both love "twinkly princess toes too" and Goosey often asks for a pedicure!!!

Look how CUTE you are!

There is nothing - NOTHING - I love more in this world than teeny chubby prettily painted kiddo feet. Nothing.

Kimberly said...

Love it!

I love painting my girls toes. It's a very simple thing that makes them ridiculously happy.

Great shots.

Please excuse my Keanu Reeves moment but...Whoa! You're the pun queen in this post..."toe-tally," "no easy feat"...I love Briar's git-r-done speak-"I got my toes like it too." Awesome. Plus I forgot about her hilarious polish remorse. And the pics of you guys is so damn cute! Pregnancy is adorable!
