Finger nail polish

Eli has been obsessed with fingernail polish. He asked me the other day if he could paint Hallie and my toenails. I kept putting him off. Finally I told him he could paint Hallie's toenails. He got so excited. HE ran in my bathroom and picked out the"perfect" color and got everything ready. He actually did a pretty good job.

When he got done with hers, he asked if he could do mine. I didn't have time, so I told him maybe later. well, of course he pestered me and asked me about million times if he could do mine. When I told him he could, again he got so excited and ran to get a color for me. It was actually very cute to see him concentrate so hard on painting and making them look good. He didn't do quite as good a job on my toes, but he did ok for his first time.

Then tonight he asked Ryan if he wanted to pretend he was a girl, so that he could paint his toes. Ryan was a little disturbed by this, but said ok. JUST KIDDING! OF course Ryan told Eli that boys don't pretend like they are girls.

I don't know what brought this on, and why he is so obsessed, but I think it is quite funny.IMG_0972

I really believe that all little boys go through a phase being transfixed with make-up. All kinds. Some even become rock stars just so they can wear eyeliner, and now they have cosmetics lines for men that are, and I hope you are listening Ryan, completely heterosexual. Nothing to worry about, it's just good for a few laughs.

Tell Eli he can come over and paint Bella's toenails!! :o) I think it's nice of you to let him!! My boys would love that.... I just posted about Bo loving lip gloss on. He would let Chloe put it on him whenever she wanted to. I thought it was funny. No biggee.... ;o) I was laughing at the part about him wanting Ryan to pretend he's a girl. ha ha I'm sure Ryan loved that one about as much as Jason would. ha ha My boys love to play with makeup and stuff....and they just do it 'cause they see us doing it. I think it's funny....
