My daughter and I were heading to get school supplies – until I had a better idea.
I asked my 7-year old if she wanted to get our nails done instead…
She thought that sounded awesome (and so did I).
We ditched the plan and took a detour.
She picked hot pink and hot green to alternate. She whispered to me how amazing the woman was who was doing my nails. We laughed at how funny it was that we ditched out on school supplies. She told me she loved me, and I told her she was amazing.
Sometimes I find that creating a little fun gives me the energy boost I need. I had plenty of energy to get school supplies later and we had so much fun.
Next time you have the chance, pull over and get your nails done. Fun and connection are awesome. Do more of them.
