Pedicures and 4 year olds, oh my!

Posted on July 21st, 2011

So I finally got my butt to the nail place today to get a pedicure. Yay! I swear to you, they had to use Hooves Be Gone on my feet. But I had some incredible comedy relief in the 4-year old boy sitting next to me.

First, he announced gleefully that he was so glad he’d worn his Spiderman bathing suit, since of course that meant he could get “all in” in the pedi sink. I think his mom about died. She kept repeating “it’s not a bathtub, it’s a sink” while the rest of us tried not to laugh our manicures off. Then, he couldn’t reach his toes from the seat over the sink and onto the footrest. So he stretched out, laid over the sink, put his arms behind his head like a pillow and said, “this is the life.”

Seriously, the kid was adorable.

After that, he had a very intense talk with the pedicurist about the state of his large toe nail which apparently had suffered some damage and was a very unusual shade of blue. They decided he should not try to match his nail polish to the injury, but instead would just gussy everything else up with a nice coat of gold glitter polish. He then stretched out again, and waited patiently while she painted his toes. He also took a minute to inform all of us that gold glitter was a boy color. Who knew? Apparently, girls get silver glitter, so remember that the next time you are in the mood for glittery toes.

I’m telling you, he was too cute for words. I wanted so badly to take a photo of him chilling in the water, but I figured his mom would have me arrested for something :)

    I love the entertainment while getting my pedi. I purposely try to go when I know there will be children around because I always feel a little awkward when unable to communicate effectively with the woman scrubbing my feet. this boy sounds priceless!!

    Diane, he was too cute. He was having absolutely the best time possible and was a total spitfire. He really made my day :)

    I don’t think I would find it amusing if I was getting a pedicure and there was a four year old boy sitting next to me getting one too. I guess his mom is one of those parents that think its wrong to distinguish between things that boys do and don’t do. One day the boy gets a pedicure, the next he’s trying on girls clothes and his mom is picking out dresses for him.
