Emma came to me this afternoon saying pretty desperately, "UH OH!!! MOMMA, POOPOO!!!" I thought this was going to be it! I set her on the potty and we waited...and waited...and waited. Emma was getting bored with the potty, so I came up with a brilliant plan.
"Emma, do you want to paint your toenails like ladybugs?"
She was ALL for it! We had talked about it for a couple of days, but just kept running out of time.
She was ALL FOR IT!!!
This was a great way to not only keep her on the potty, but keep her still so her nails would dry.
Brilliant plan if I do say so myself!
Painting tiny nails is not for the faint of heart.
Add to that tiny, wiggly toes and you have quite a challenge before you!
Add to that a desire to do something cute like polka dots and maybe I should have thought a little more!
They weren't perfect, but she was pleased as punch! Later when Mom called she squealed with delight, pointed the phone at her toes and said, "Nana, paint!" I guess she thought Nana could see through the phone. Can't blame her as we sk*pe a lot and she CAN see.
Totally worth the wiggles for that grin and excited squeal!
Well, then I couldn't let her be the only one with pretty toes...
so I bared my blah, winter toes for a touch of secret color!
