Jason has his MBA classes on Friday nights and Saturday mornings. It's sad not to be able to see him so much during the weekend. I have to say, though, that it does facilitate some Mommy & McKinley time on Friday nights. We stay up late (OK, so 9pm is not that late for me, but it's pretty late for McKinley) and paint our nails, watch a movie, listen to music, lay on the grass & look at the clouds, whatever. Here are a couple pictures from painting our nails tonight:
McKinley INSISTS on doing them herself...
So, yeah, we go through A LOT of nail polish remover
It really does take her a while. She holds up different colors and I assume contemplates the shade that would most compliment her skin tone and hair color.
I hope we continue this even after Jason is done with school. I love having "girl time" with her and talking - tonight about bumblebees and popcicles - maybe one day about boys and shopping. I'm cherishing this time I have right now, though, and there are many times I still look at her and just MARVEL at how she came from ME and that I have the blessing to be a part of her earthly journey.
