Princesses and Pedicures
I don't really think Brooke is a "girly-girl" proven by her love of all things football! But, she does love her shoes, hats, purses and jewelery, so she definitely has some girly tendencies! Tuesday when I was off work, we had some fun girl time painting our toe nails. It started as a way to get her to let me cut her toenails, but didn't really help that task! She was very excited about her pink toes and every time her socks come off, she exclaims, "Ooohaaah" like she's forgotten that they were painted each time! She also got some new princess pj's which were supposed to be for pajama day at day care, but never made it due to illness. (Yes, I bought new pajamas just for pajama day at day care, but I justified that she needed new ones this spring anyway!). I didn't really think she cared about Princesses as she is still more into Dora, but she talked about her "princess jammies" all night! She also has new princess slippers which she got around the holidays but just started wearing this week!
Brooke is really starting to have her own ideas and thoughts these days. Today, when I walked in from work, I was greeted with the usual, "MOMMY!!!", immediately followed by, "you need to buy more fruit snacks!" Apparently she had been telling Jason this all night after realizing last night that we were out. I guess I have a job to do on my day off tomorrow!
