Pros and Cons

Today was...a little rough. I'm not feeling too well. And neither is Brynlee. And neither is Jimmy. Oh all being sick together is loads of fun!

I got to do a pedicure today. I'm not sure there is anything I like less. I knew pedicures would be tough for me to do. I don't like feet. I don't like to touch feet. But pedicures are part of the deal, so I'm stuck. I've done 3 so far. Every time I walk up to the front and see that little foot scrubber on my pile I want to just clock out and go home. Ugh.

All my pedicures have been seniors... so you can imagine how great those feet are!

After a long day I went to pick Brynlee up from day care to be told that she is ripping other kids hair out of their head. And being just an all around hellian. Great! I'm not sure why that bothers me so much. I feel like it's a personal attack against me, and I know it's not. I need to grow a thicker skin with these type of things. But it really bugs.

On the flip side, today was a good day. I finally did a 4 piece French braid. Yes, a French braid with 4 pieces instead of 3. It was intense! I had to practice it all morning, and I finally got it. Yeah! I have to say my braiding has come a long way. When we first started school I could barely French braid. Now I'm pretty good!

We got our seats moved at school and I sit next to really fun people. I could have been put next to some not so fun people, so I lucked out. And I'm right next to the shampoo bowl. So convenient for my clients!

The lady I did a pedicure on was really really sweet. She was just so nice. It almost made up for the fact that I had to clip her gnarly toe nails. Almost. :)

Brynlee said I love you today. I think. It might have been like "I want a cookie" or something. But it sounded like she said "Mama I love you". That's what I'm going to take it as anyway. I needed her to say that today!

It is the greatest thing in the world to hear your kid say they love you. Charlotte tells me when I put her down for bed and every now and again just randomly. My favorite was when she came to see me in the hospital and when she first walked in she said "Mom, I missed you." Makes your heart melt. I knew kids were good for something :)

This post is the exact reason why I cant have you practice your pedicures on me! I am 100% sure, another post like this would be written immediately after you finished painting my toes...yes, it's bad. Really bad. I guess that is what I get for wearing flip flops every day and never going in for a pedicure! However, at least with you, I know if you are talking about my nasty feet and not wondering how much you are making fun of me in another language!
