I’m the kind of person who takes rule-following to the extreme, even when the “rules” are more like healthy suggestions. Case in point: during my pregnancy I only wore nail polish once – on my toes – rather then take any chances affecting my baby’s health. Yes, I know there are pregnancy-approved nail polishes, and yes I know everyone would have been just fine, but for me steering clear fell into the better safe than sorry mentality.
Well, the baby has long since flown the womb and with it finally starting to feel like summer around here, I’ve been craving color in my life. I bought a bottle of hot pink nail polish, and I can’t believe what I’ve been missing. Looking at my fingers is like a shot of summer sun. It makes me disproportionately cheerful, but hey, it’s the little things, right?
Lily has never seen me wearing nail polish so I was curious what she would think. Her reaction? She stroked my pinky nail lovingly and then shoved it in her mouth. Approved.
