Real men wear toenail polish


My mom painted Jaxon's toes over the weekend. He really digs it. The mean older kids at the park today didn't seem to think it was cute. For the first time in my career as a mom I witnessed my child being made fun of. It went something like this, "You're a girl, you're a little dummy girl with pink toes". I literally wanted to kick some five year old but today. Thankfully I resisted. The paint will be coming off tonight. Thanks again Grandma Debbie! haha

I feel for you. Every time we paint G's toes it turns into a family feud. Which is about 90% of the reason I do it in the first place...

I am so glad you wrote! I have a heard lots about you. I actually saw your blog like 2 days ago and I went to comment on your "binky" problem and I got interrupted so It never happened! BUT I will just tell you now!
SO my son was THE EXACT SAME as yours when it came to his pacifier. He calls it his "bobby" and he was obbessed, he preferred certain colors too. He LOVED them. People would ask how old he was and all that. I didn't really mind it, Me and all my brothers had pacifiers till we were 4!!! So we were Pro-Pacifier. BUT Brandon and his family are totally against it, which totally bugged me....ANYWAYS! We just started telling him Bobby's are only for nap time and night time. It took him a tiny while to understand, but NOW he is so so so good. When we go get him from his nap, he says, "Wait, I gotta put my bobby away" and he's fine. I think by the time he is 3 he will be totally done with it.

Those mean boys have no sense of fashion! How fun that you found me!! Your little guy is adorable! I can see a lot of you in him! I bet your little girl will be just as cute, or cuter. Congrats. Take care.
