"Don't even worry about it mom..."

Mya is getting to the point where she will very rarely take naps. With me being pregnant, if I don't have a nap during the day I am toast by 8:00. Sometimes I get lucky and Mya will fall asleep on the couch while watching a cartoon then I get to sleep too. Today I must have been really tired, I woke up to a blowing sound and found Mya with two colors of finger nail polish and all the way done painting her fingers and toes.
I ran over to her thinking I would find spilled fingernail polish all over my tile as she was saying
" Don't even worry about it mom, I'm getting bigger and older and can paint them by myself. See, aren't they just perfect?" She did do a pretty good job, her fingernails are purple and her toes are pink. She had found a sucker that she had waiting for her when she was done and said
" I got me this sucker for being soo very patient while I painted my fingers and toes. Would you like me to paint yours mom?"
I was just glad she was on the tile and had a dishtowel that she was sitting on while painting them because she is definitely not old enough to do it herself yet.

Wow--nice that she knew to do it on the tile instead of the carpet. :) What a big girl!

My my...someone's got a little attitude:) That cracks me up. I'm surprised she thought to put a towel under her and everything...smart girl. I love that she rewarded herself for being so "patient." That's cute!
