Did you know that Sophie HAS to have polish on her nails every day, even if it has lasted a week and is down to just a chip left on one nail? Yesterday she saw that I bought a bottle of nail polish remover to clean up our 2 week old manicures.

"Mommy! Oh good...I need that stuff...wook at my nails! Can we fix them when we get home?"

"Of course Sophie, we just have to wait for Miles' nap time."

"Oh Mommy, Mommy! Did you make sure to get the wittle "marshmallows" to take off the nail polish?!"

"The marshmallows? What marshmallows?"

"You know...the wittle round marshmallows that take off the nail polish?!"

"Oh mean the cotton balls? But yes they do look a bit like marshmallows." *chuckle*

"Yeah, that's what I mean. But Mommy, please don't put cotton balls in my hot chocolate. You know I'm learning about all this stuff. All these crazy marshmallows and cotton balls stuff..."

Seriously, how can you NOT love this girl!

I think this is the best part of motherhood. All the cute adorable things that they say...these are memories that we want to stay in our brain forever. As I look back at my journal I am always amazed how much I have forgotten. Even my website reminds me of how much the girls have changes. My Gracie is a nail polish girl too! She just loves to have pretty toes and fingers. :) Too cute!

Little girls are so much fun! Just wait until "regular" paint jobs are no longer fun and she's got you doing fancy stripes and flowers and polka dots! I never knew how creative I was until I had to provide amazing manicures on my daughter :)
