Tell me fellow moms…How on earth do you manage to paint your fingernails?
I love nail polish, and have a collection which would rival that of your local nail salon (when you know how to work over CVS with coupons and extra care bucks you build up quite a large free stash).
Before my son was born I used to paint my own fingers and toes weekly. While I was pregnant I would treat myself to a mani/pedi every other week. I know that’s sounds like a luxury and not living lean, but if you saw how swollen my poor feet were you would agree that pedicure was a necessity!
Now that LD has entered my life I can’t quite figure out how to paint my nails. As soon as I lug the overflowing baskets of OPI out into the living room for a little pampering he wakes up from his nap. It’s like he has a sixth sense…Ooohhh mom is painting her fingernails I need something!
My son is almost six months old, and I have successfully painted my nails ZERO times throughout the course of his life. The last time I had a decent at home manicure was while I was in labor. (I painted my nails to distract myself from the contraction pains). Yesterday I begged my husband to pick LD up from daycare so I could visit my favorite nail salon. Since it was my birthday he couldn’t really protest, and it was okay to splurge the money.
But, I’m just wondering how you mommas do it? Is it possible to have pretty nails AND a baby?
