A First...

polish Today, I share with you a first in my life - courtesy of #5 of 5.

With the Mother of Five serving hot lunch - then going on a field trip with #4 of 5's class, I get some home-alone time with #5 of 5.

What was the first thing we did??

After we got home from preschool, she came running up to me with four little tiny bottles in her hand, and asked me to paint her fingernails...
PAINT HER FINGERNAILS?? I've mixed and sold paint. I have painted houses, walls, boats, and even cars (Tony, have you seen the "Pizza man"??)... But fingernails?? TINY HUMAN FINGERNAILS??
She chose two colors (one for each hand), and reminded me that I am to navigate around the one finger with a band-aid on it.

In the end, I was successfully able to paint her nails - without any previous training or experiences!

  1. I'm one of those strange humans under the age of 40 with nothing pierced or tattooed. I had to learn the hard way how to put my oldest's pierced earings in.

    I'll take painting fingernails.

  2. I need a microscope to even see my daughters finger nails.

    BTW: did you use a brush or roller? :)

  3. Great job FOF! Nice color choice by your daughter. Sweet Pea would love those colors too! I'll tell you a quick story... when I was on bedrest in the hosp., Dad Stuff painted my toe nails. I only had one color choice but that was ok with me. I needed some color to brighten up our situation. He did well! :) Nice that you were willing to partake in your daughter's fun.

  4. How cute. And thank God that her nails were wet so she couldn't return the favor.

  5. Woo hoo - good for you! Did she also make you get out the hair dryer so you could dry them for her faster? ;-)

    Do you mean to tell me you listened to the Cure in the 80's and NEVER painted your fingernails black? I find that unlikely.

  9. Sorry to disapoint... Never a "Black Nail Polish" sort of guy... I never really had that much angst in my life to go "full goth".

    I was just jealous that Robert Smith (lead singer) could get up out of bed, do NOTHING with his hair, and make it look good!
