Lyla wanted her nails painted too...so the lady told her to climb up in the chair and she would paint her nails pink. I immeadiately told the lady that we are far from sitting still to let them dry so I do not in any way expect perfection on that child's nails...so don't even try!
Fooled me...cause she did a pretty dang good job! The lady .... not Lyla
Lyla about drove me nuts!
She just about fell out of the rolly chair onto the ceramic tile floor while holding my Iphone...all I could do was give her the "mom" look and tell her sit down .... cause my hands were trapped getting my nails buffed at this point.
Then she announces to the whole entire nail salon that she has to poop! I forgot to mention that we had already been to the bathroom twice since we had been there...so I know for fact she only going because she was bored. So out of complete hopelessness...I said, "Fine-Go!" and secretely praying the whole time that she doesn't fall in the toilet and get stuck while I am getting my nails done and I can't hear her so she would be stuck in a toilet for at least another 20 minutes...unless someone else had to poop!
Thank God for my cousin Brittany ...she saved my child from a mommy that was about to go insane. She showed up at the nail shop...took Lyla out to her car and let her and her daughter play for a few more mintues while my nails finished up. I don't think she will ever understand how much I love her!!
On a sappy note: She is a single mom...and in my opinion has a dang good job of taking care of her little family...I am so scared sometimes when my husband and I have our "oh my goodness I am ready to just pack my stuff and move to Egypt" fights of having to start over and doing it all on my own...but I know if I had to...that Brittany would be there for me...she would give me her tips and secrets...and more important she would be there for me to cry on. Some days...like today...I can NOT wait until Gregg gets home ...just so I can sit and breathe and not have to worry about what Lyla is thinking or doing or thinking about doing. Having to do it all on my own..like her...would take a lot of strength and patience
on the other hand.....
if you were a single mom........
you wouldn't have an extra person in the house to clean up after..................
let's not go there
When we got home from our hellacious of a nail salon trip...I had Lyla try on her bikini. It is already swimsuit weather here in Arkansas so Lyla is learning to strut her stuff!!
Anytime Brittany and Alyssa come over we always have a good time!
Whether we are sitting outside watching the girls play....
driving around looking at houses we can't afford....
listening to old-y but good-y songs on the computer while the girls dance and we sing our hearts out like we are center stage at the Grand Ol Opry!!
Anything we do it fun!
Tonight we decided to make bows. Never made a bow before. Ever.
But tonight...I did pretty good!!
I think I will continue my quest in bow making.
Here's my first virgin bow:
I added the middle bow after I tried it on. It isn't done...cause I have to put cutesy stuff on it...but I think it is looking pretty good!! What do you think?
