Girly-Girl Time

This past Sunday, my older two kids left for their church trip to Virginia. Andrew was with his grandmother. So, that left just Elayna, my youngest girl, for a few hours until she went to her dad's house that evening. I'd thought about it earlier in the week and decided that she and I would spend some Girly-girl time together.

I so rarely get one-on-one time with any of my kids. It was only a few hours, so we couldn't do anything spectacular, but we had fun.

First, she took a bath and washed her hair. Then while it was wet, I braided it into two braids per her request. When we do that, the next day when we take the braids out, her hair is crazy-wavy and cute.

Then, of course, her nails had to be done. With pink polish and glitter hearts painted on top. Toenails too.

When that was done, I made her face up with a little of my make-up. She was loving it.

We had planned to walk to the ice cream shop during this time, but we forgot that they were closed on Sundays. So we improvised...we walked to CVS and got frozen treats from there. She also got a pair of Hannah Montana sunglasses.

It was so simple, but so nice. She loved
being the center of attention for a little while!

The end result, from my camera phone....

Every girl deserves to be treated like a princess! I bet she was thrilled.

It's the one on one time that they really treasure. Mainly because they are pretending to be an only child..trust me, I did the same thing.

I love painted nails on little girls...it's so cute!

I think no matter what you do with them, they love it. It's not the event, it's the time with you that means the most. And sometimes, it's just what mommy needs!

Cute picture!
This post makes me miss when my girl was younger. I used to put her hair in a pony tail, split it into three, and make three braids. The next day when dry, I would put it in two pony tails, one on each side. It looked adorable, like puppy dog ears. She loved it and so did everybody else.

So jealous. With all the testosterone in my house I'm either going to need to borrow a neighbor girl or dress the 3 yr old in drag.
