Avery is obsessed with fingernails and nail polish (even though she chews her nails and barely has any to polish!). One thing she HAD to buy on her birthday was a bottle of white nail polish. I don’t ask questions; I just go with it.
So, just now, she came in to my desk and said, “Mom, do you know where my white nail polish is? And I need a toothpick.”
The white nail polish was sitting on my desk… duh, where else would it be (my desk is the catch-all in our house… no wonder I have trouble concentrating on work!). And I looked at her skeptically and said, “a toothpick??”
She replied, “YES, MOM! A toothpick… I want to put little white dots on the nail.”
I said, “I don’t think nail polish is really going to stick to the toothpick, it’s so pointy…”
Avery replied, “MOM. This works. I saw it on YouTube!!!!” (Can’t you just SEE her standing there, yelling at me with her hand on her hip??)
And I laughed myself silly and got the diva a toothpick.
