We had to be out of the house for a few hours this afternoon while our agent held an open house, so we ran over to fix a problem with the sprinklers at the new place. In the process, the girls got drenched. Hmmmm, “got” isn’t really the right word, it kind of implies that something happened *to* them, and that is not at all the case. They were the ones who ran screaming through the sprinklers, rolled on the lawn yelling that it was raining, chased each other through the puddles and slid down the slippery wet slide (over and over). Yeah. They looked like drowned rats.
Since we couldn’t go home to change after the drenching, TubaDad went to get a haircut (I swear he gets those few little hairs cut about every two weeks) and I took Ro and Ree to Target to buy some new dry outfits. (You just know my arm had to be twisted to go buy little girl clothes at Target, heh heh.) Anyhow, we changed in the back of the van, and then, newly garbed in what were really cute little printed tops and grey leggings, we looked around for what else could kill an hour. And toe-painting won by a mile. Trotted over to a local nail place, ordered a pedi for me and two “kid specials” for the girls (for $5 they get filing, color, and a decoration).
They adored it. First professional nail painting at 4 and 3/4. Hee! I’m pretty sure I was in my thirties before I had a professional pedi.
TubaDad wandered in at one point and looked a little lost surrounded by the sea of estrogen so I tossed him the purse cam and said “Here, take a picture or two, then you can escape outside and get a diet coke or something.”
Once Ro and Ree were all fancied up, the tiny stylist chairs were the perfect perch to watch a little iPad movie and wait for mama to get beautiful. Please excuse the aforementioned drowned-rat hair. I didn’t have a comb in the car, so they got finger-scraped-back tails.
Sweet babes enjoyed the experience very much, and I really appreciated that this salon offers an affordable fun option for mini babes. Ro chose hot pink with flowers and Ree chose electric blue with flowers. Oh, and I have cherry red with flowers.Little cuties!
Hope you had a wonderful weekend and your week is looking pretty dang good too!
