What you see...

You see a very sad Ella. What you don't see is that there is fingernail polish all over her sheets and blanket, her face, her legs, her shirt, her shorts and both her big toes and in her hair. You also don't see the hair do-dads that she won't leave in place, and you can't see that it is supposed to be nap time.

You see Ella smiling for the camera. What you don't see is the buckets of tears and the top-of-the-lungs screaming that was going on before she saw the camera. You don't see the bed that she is supposed to be napping in, or, again, the cute hair-do she had before she got stuck climbing up Haley's headboard.

You do NOT see me giggling at these disobedient things she does...at least not until after the punishment and picture...

Ha-that's cute! Love that first picture. ;o) Reminds me of when I caught a 2 yr old ethan (during naptime) playing basketball in the house with the egss. I have a picture of that somewhere too!

I don't believe it, not even for a moment. I think we need to come hang out at your place. We NEVER have nail polish mishaps.
