Nail Polish For Boys: The Sequel

I’m sure you’re all dying to know how the nail polish saga played out. After making this project way bigger than it needed to be, I finally purchased some Piggy Paint.

The reason I decided on that brand over the others? It was available in a store where I happened to be shopping. Convenience trumps all in the game of toddler parenting.

So as you can see, (or barely see) Shnook’s fingernails are pink. The coloring in this photo doesn’t really represent. They are this color which is called Angel Kisses, but is really more of a bubblegum.

He chose red for his toes (not pictured). I started doing his toes last week two by two on a good behavior basis, as it has been particularly poor of late. It took the entire week to get them done.

This morning, we did his fingers. I had a whole plan of prepping him, in case some of the kids at school said something about it, since no one other than his swim teacher and two girl pool-mates have seen his toes.

Then, I decided better of it. I don’t want to helicopter the crap out of this issue.

Actually, the truth is, I forgot. So,  I just threw him to the wolves. I’m hoping for the best when I pick him up from school today.

Would you have prepared your child for potential teasing, or just let things be?
