Coming of Age

The other night as Shaun and I were deep in conversation and Amanda was in bed, Avery was finding her own fun in the bathroom. Normally, she is very trustworthy, so we didn't stop to check on her. When she finally came in to the room where we were, she was holding a bottle of my nail polish and a tentative look on her face.

Without looking, I immediately knew what she had done...opened it! As I pulled her onto my lap to explain that "we don't get into Mommy's things without asking first, blah, blah, blah", I looked down, paused and said, "Wow!! You did a really good job!" (I know, probably not found in any parenting books) She had painted her fingernails and her toenails all by herself!

This is my first time having a two-year old, so don't mind me if this is just the normal way of things, but I thought she did an amazing job...not so much with the lipstick above her eye.

there's a lot of parenting advice you'll never see in books- admiring a good stealthy pedicure is just one ;)
