Guest blogger Childlessandlovinit: My time at the nail salon has just been ruined. By your kids.
I totally look forward to getting my weekly mani/pedi -- the massage chairs, the fresh coat of pink polish, the opportunity to catch up on my trash mag reading. Until this weekend, when a Mom walked in with her three kids all under 5 (two girls, one boy -- which is a whole other story): "Mommy, I want to sit in the big chair!" I look up and see the mom and kids impatiently waiting to take over my very comfortable chair. "Can you move?" the nail lady says to me, AS she's still applying my topcoat. I want to say: "Why, so these three spoiled kids can sit in MY massage chair and get their nails done?? Don't you think that's a little ridiculous? Whatever happened to finger painting?" Instead I say nothing, grab my purse and sit in one of the regular chairs to dry. Pfft. Whatever.
I am so over the whole "Bring your kid to the nail salon" thing.
One, I am trying to relax after my work week and bringing your spoiled
screaming kids into this picture ruins it. Second, they are getting
mani/pedis at 3 years old, asking for a "special flowa" on their
toes and rhinestones to boot. Don't ya think it's a little early, not
to mention expensive? I didn't get my first massage 'til I was 30, OK?
P.S.: the whole 'bring the boy to get a mani/pedi' thing is strange. Just
Bottom line: You are spoiling your children and spoiling my fun. If you have that much cash to waste on mani/pedis for your wee ones, please do me a favor and get a sitter.
