"Is that for me?" she gasps, her eyes widening and a smile covering her face. "Are those butterfly wings? For me??"
"Sure baby," I answer, cringing at the sight of fuscia and glitter. Oh how I hate glitter. And pink.
I help her get the wings and tutu on over the dress she's worn for the day. "Wait, here's a magic wand, too!"
|thank you MommySHORTS and one of your sponsors to the Evil Glare-off getting this to us in just days!|
"A magic wand?!" she repeats with glee, her eyes sparkling like the glitter on her wings.
While Taye took Lovie to gymnastics and lunch, I spent a couple hours at the salon getting my nails and hair done (thanks to a gift card Taye gave me for my birthday in September). It's been over three years (August 2009), since having anyone cut my hair, but I was ready. I wanted to keep the length (no Mom cut, please), but I wanted it shorter in the back, longer in the front.
She did the opposite.
Meh, it's all good though. At least I have hair.
As for the nails, I went with a super dark purple/almost black color for both my toes and fingers. Normally I go dark for my toes, but rarely do I get manicures and never have I gone too dark. I figured with Halloween coming up, why not live a little.
I love them. Love Love Love them. I definitely think I'll get more manis and go dark again.
When Lovie noticed them she said, "What happened?" as she held a finger.
"I got my nails painted," I replied.
"Why black? What about pink?"
She was super confused, but has since moved on.
We hung out inside all day... watching TV, playing monster and hide n seek, painting.
My heart is *so* full.
