Who Are You?

I told you how Thursday night Baby Boy ended up in the ER with abdominal pain and was miss led on what his problem was and then I got a phone call Friday morning and he was at the hospital again so I went and picked him up and brought him home so that he can try to pass this kidney stone, which by the way he has not passed yet!

When we got to the hospital I was walking up to the ER and Baby Boy was just walking out.

I went to him as quickly as I could but the closer I got to him the more that I was convinced that it was not my Baby Boy.

This child had something wrong with him:

Are you seeing what I am seeing?

The nails!

This must obviously be a girl!

It has black nail polish on.

But why would Baby Girl be taking nail polish remover to this stranger and in our in home!

That's because those painted black nails belonged to none other than my Baby Boy!

Apparently a couple of girl friends of his thought it would be funny for them to paint his nails and go up to the local crap-mart and play Rock Band II kind of as a joke for those teens that are there playing as if they have really hit the mother load and are currently on tour.

The bad part is that he had to go to the hospital with that stuff on and he said he was so embarrassed.

I took it as a challenge for myself.

I told myself a long time ago that if any of my kids turned out to love the same sex that I would deal with it and except it and love them all the same. Even though I know he loves, loves, loves the girls!

But Oh my Gosh, I could not handle the nail polish, I mean I could not look him in the face with out saying.......GET IT OFF!

So as soon as we got home I told him where the nail polish remover was and well he was not moving fast enough so Baby Girl took it off for him.

Isn't it funny what little things bother us, I mean he has two earrings and that does not bother me.

You know that having two earrings is in now for boys but not when I was a teenager, if you wore two.....well you were swinging for the other team.

But hey what do I know .

I am just an old lady.

Have a great Sunday!

I'd have made him leave it on and would have even drawn little pumpkin faces on it for him! I'm THAT kind of mom (the kind the therapists hear about...)!

And yet my son has come home from your house with his nails painted. Of course, he also has both ears pierced. Maybe you should have let him keep them painted. It might have deterred all the girls away from him.

Let me just say that if any boy comes from my house with painted nails then I had NOTHING to do with that!
