I went out to coffee with some friends this morning since its a school holiday and most of my friends are teachers. We sat at Starbucks and chatted for just over an hour when an decided I better get home to check on the kids…oh and go to work. I didn’t have the day off, I’m still not sure why! Even though I’m not a teacher, I still should get all the same days off that my kids get off…right?

I get home to have my 10 yo say she has a surprise for me. I walk upstairs and she has turned her closet into a day spa!

How cute is that!

So, needless to say, I chose not to go to work but I did sit in that pink fuzzy chair for at least an hour….

and soaked my feet in the warm silky water….

and let her paint many layers upon my toes.

I even got the special post pedi slipper things that are clearly made for 10yo’s and not grown-ups….if that’s what you call me!

Pink + glitter + little heart stickers = a happy heart!

And, at the end of the day, I need to add, she did a pretty darn good job!


It’s quite possible it meant even MORE to her than it did to me…and it meant the WORLD to me!
