I was painting my nails today and DS asked if I'd do his. (He is 4.) I told him, "Sure, what color?" He wanted one foot pink and one white. LOL After I painted them, he proclaimed me the best Momma ever and happily trotted off.


I really didn't foresee drama here. Anyhow, a few have said, "Poor kid," or, "That's so sad." When I ask why though, you don't answer. So my question is, why is he a poor kid and why is it sad? He is quite happy as was quite upset when his dad told him nail polish is for girls.

 Very cute! He's only 4 - doesn't know any better.

My DD is 4 and wants to wear Captain America costumes more than princess costumes. So she wears her younger brothers (2T-3T) costumes, that are WAY to small, but loves it LMFAO!

Be prepared though, I'm sure many moms are going to have nasty opinions about this.....

Ugh my dh ruined all this stuff for ds and me! He would tell ds when he was like 2 that dresses are for girls. We'd be at the store and I'd grab those princess costumes and say "here you go!" But dh would step in and say, "those are for girls!" Same thing with fingernail/toenail painting. I did paint ds's toenails once but he freaked out right away and wanted it off lol.

DH will be a little irritated but will let it go. DS prefers girl toys in his kids meal, his favorite colors are pink and purple and he likes to dress up as a princess. He also loves Tae Kwon Do, digging in the dirt, rolling on the floor with the cats and dogs.
The "girly" things irk DH but I tell him to get over it. He's only a kid once.

My son loves getting his nails painted! I've been doing it since he was 2(almost 6 now). He use to love to play with make up. He got really good with it!
