A couple weeks ago I mentioned in this post that my little monster likes to sleep with nail polish. So, I thought maybe I should tell the story of how my almost 2 year old became addicted to nail polish (or “purple” as she likes to call it).
As I mentioned here I am taking day classes at school now and we hired a nanny to come over and take care of the girls 4 days a week. (The nanny is also our neighbor but that’s not really relevant to the story, it just makes her more convenient).
The nanny carries a large purse (also, the nanny has been nicknamed “purse” by the little monster). So purse walks in the door with her large purse and immediately hands it over to the little monster. Inside purse’s purse there are always lots of goodies. One of which is a hot pink bottle of nail polish.
Ever since the day that my little monster discovered this wonderful bottle of hot pink nail polish she has been in love. She carries this bottle of polish or “purple” around everywhere with her. She even started bringing it into bed with her at night.
My little monster falls asleep with purple in her hand but as she drifts farther into sleep she slowly lets it go from her tiny little fingers. Then a couple hours into her sleep she wakes up crying out for her “purple”, the crying gets louder and louder until I find it and place it back in her hands. It has become her security blanket, the thing that keeps her safe and calm while she is sleeping.
So I have trouble sleeping at night because my almost 2 year old is addicted to nail polish.
P.S. Stay tuned for more stories about the little monster and her purple.
