... so when August started, Jerry gave the kids a goal to read 5 books every day until school started. They each got to pick something they really REALLY wanted for a prize when they completed the goal.
The boys picked transformers helmets to go for. Sarah wanted 'that thing where they do your toe nails at the salon'
Today was the day... the big 'completion of the goal'. So daddy dropped the girls off at the salon, and took the boys to the store...
... And Sarah was officially introduced into my secret world of pure paradise (aka Pedicures)
...and I had to relinquish my parental need to control every aspect of life as she reached for the BRIGHT BLUE polish and would not be 'casually persuaded' into any other color...
... and when she started making conversations which included, "the next time we come..."
and "when we come again..." I realized I was in big trouble. I think she's hooked.
