So last night, we were sitting around as a family when Sophia mentioned that she had always wanted to have a mud mask. (Apropos of what, I don't know; it was pretty random.)
.
Since I'm a Jafra Consultant, and we have an incredible spa line, I told her that we could make it happen right then and there! She lit up - and so did her sister, Chloë. I had just gotten some nail goodies on super-dee-duper clearance at Aeropostale, so I asked them if they wanted pedicures, too. (Sophia still sucks her thumb, so I don't like to paint her fingernails.)

Anyway, they hopped into the tub to soak for a while - and I decided to join them - before I applied the mud mask. Then, while that set, I had them sit on the couch so I could do their pedis.

I was just finishing up Sophia's piggy-toes (ignore the blurps; I'm the kinda girl who makes a big nail polish mess and then cleans it up in the next shower or bath, so sue me!) when Jack decided we were having way too much girly fun.
.
"Can I have a mud mask?" he sheepishly asked.
.
"Sure! Do you want your toenails painted, too?" I responded.
.
He did:

Doesn't he look adorbs?

Here are Chloë's day-glo green piggies, pre-clean-up. And as for Jack,

He chose magnetic brown paint. (It really is magnetic!)
.
So my question for you this week is:
.
If you have - or had - a son, would you do this with him, too?
.
Or do you find it "wrong?"
.
As for me, I have no problems with gender role-bending. This mama has no problem letting her girls play with dirt and trucks and giving her son dolls to play with!
.
Now, your turn!

Fin.
