cute girls post of the day
...my cute girls, that is. I took Cecilia grocery shopping, and although we were, of course, very careful with what we spent -- Cecilia was actually a pretty good sport about being denied a number of things she asked for -- I did indulge her in a bottle of nail polish, because I'd promised her earlier I'd get her some. I let her pick out her color from a rack of the lest expensive brand, and she chose the single bottle of iridescent blue with glitter from among all the reds. When we got home, I painted her fingernails and toenails...she was reluctant to take a bath that evening, until I assured her that it wouldn't wash off. As I painted her nails (I haven't done that sort of thing since I was single and sometimes applied polish to girlfriends' toenails), she informed me that Sailor Moon gets nail polish (during her transformation), and I told her she was right.
This morning, she asked me to apply a second coat, as some had chipped off her fingernails. As I did so, Naomi wanted in on the action, so (thanks to my wife's excellent suggestion) I colored Omi's nails with a blue highlighter. As I did so, Cecilia told me that Oni could be her best friend, Sailor Mercury.
Indeed, one silver lining to the unemployment situation is, of course, that I'm spending a lot more time with The Girls. In fact, we're going to take some time this afternoon at the Children's Museum. (I'll have my cell phone, of course, in case anyone calls about a job.)
