Normally I would post a No Filter Friday today, but Hailey has been sick and I did not plan on posting this morning. I have been up to my elbows in tissues and snot! She has gone through 4 boxes of kleenex in the last 48 hours. Sorry, I’m sure that is not the visual you wanted this morning. Anyhow, as I was getting Skylar ready for school this morning she said something that I knew would probably give you a good laugh.
Skylar likes to color on her hands while she is at school. This morning as I was helping her wash the marker off I noticed that her nails were a bit long. I told her that we needed to trim her nails up this weekend. Skylar knows that in the spring, usually around Easter, I take the girls on a special date to get a manicure and pedicure. It is our celebration of the weather getting warmer and being able to wear flip-flops.
About 10 minutes later she was getting dressed in our room as Chris and I were in the attached bathroom getting ready ourselves. Skylar hollered to us “When I get my nails done can I get them painted black?” I replied “Why do you want them to be black?” To which she stated very matter of fact “I want to go GOTH!”
Chris and I started cracking up! I didn’t even know she knew what goth was. So I asked her who she knew that was goth. She said “Mom, don’t you know? Samantha from Danny Phantom (one of her favorite cartoons) is goth! I think she is hilarious!”
Well there you go! Oh the joys of children! You gotta love ‘em!
Hope you have a great weekend!
