Sharing a bit of silliness with you..
Emily got some bright funky colored nail polish in her Easter basket yesterday.
Neon orange, purple, gold, pink...
You know that's all the rage right now, right?
Teenage girls with blue fingernails?
So, I decided I needed to be COOL. In my kid's eyes that is. LOL AS IF - right?
And somewhere along the line, I decided since it was Easter, i should paint my fingernails to look like Easter eggs! :D
(enter in disclaimer: I do not wear fingernail polish on my fingers! It lasts all of a day as I use my hands wayy too much! lol I stick with painting my toes, and go au natural on my fingers.)
I mean how cool are these?!? :D
Bright neon polka dotted easter egg fingernails!
(i was thinkin they would be coming off early this morning - but have fun for a day!)
So I excitedly went and asked my kids what they thought
"Are these HIP?"
(another side note: NEVER ask your kids if they think YOU are cool! That's just asking for dissapointment! lol)
Emily said "REALLY MOM????? They're uh... pretty bright!" *rolling eyes*
(strike one - voted not hip)
Calli -look! how cool are my fingernails?!?! :D
"Oohh MOM. WOW. Are you actually going to keep them???"
(hmm... strike 2)
Bailey - check out my groovy wayyyy coool Easter egg fingernails! Am I hip?
"Hoooah Mom! Oh yah... you're soooo hip" *massive sarcasm*
So hmm. Apparently I am NOT hip.
And it's not hip to be cool.
LOL (just for you 80's girls)
I decided to push the envelope a little bit later in the day.
"So does this mean you don't think I'm cool??"
(see disclaimer above)
Em: "Hrrmph. grumble grumble"
Calli: "oh i think you're cool mom! Will you do MY fingernails like that?"
Bay: "Mom... sigh... YOU are cool. But you are NOT hip!"
Well... there ya go!
Sometimes it's fun to push your kids out of their comfort zone! LOL!!
Hope you have a great day - try some silliness!
