5/10 minutes of Banana Yellow

One of my most cherished memories as a mommy will be the countless times I've painted MJV's little fingernail and toenails.
At least every other day.
All colors.
Even bright blue and banana yellow (to match her new "keenie" aka bathing "soup")
In restaraunts when she's acting out...pulling out a little bottle of polish works like a charm.
She sits so patiently so calmly.
Blows on them so sweetly when I'm finished.
She giggles with approval when I'm done, flashing her not one, not two, but three dimples.
Sometimes even her big brother does them for her.
Nicely polished toes goes well with new Snow White high heels.
She's so girlie.
Girlier than me.
Sweet and Sour.
Just like those sour patch commercials.
I cherish these 5/10 minutes with her.
