Today was Pajama Day at my daughter's school. They have a small class, 7 boys and 3 girls, and this is their second year together, so they have a really nice dynamic. They had a slumber party atmosphere: pizza and games, and the girls made jewelry (I asked her what the boys did and she said "boy stuff"). She came home with her nails painted and sparkly strawberry lip balm in her pocket and announced to me that she wanted her own nail polish. I suppose it had to happen sooner or later and it's totally innocent (she didn't want to bathe tonight for fear the polish would come off in the bath), but it's a preview of what's to come. I hope I'm ready for it.
