It all started with mommy's pure laziness. I was sporting some old toenail polish that I hadn't removed. Alex noticed it and said "Uh oh mommy! Your red toenails fell off!" I assured him that it was just old polish and let him know that mommy would get rid of it and just have plain toenails for a while. That would not do for my creative and awesome son. You see, he's a huge fan of Zurg from the Toy Story movies. And Zurg is primarily Purple. Thus, Alex's favorite color is purple. "Mommy, you're toenails need to be purple." Only he pronounces it "puh puh" which makes me want to squeeze him with hugs every single time he says it. "Alright Alex, next time we go to the store, you can pick out some purple polish for mommy's toes." Boy did he hold me to that. "Polish mommy!" he shouts from his perch on the end of the shopping cart. He jumps down and peruses the colors. I direct him to the Sally Hansen (I do have standards even if I'm lazy about them) and pull down 3 different purples. He picks one and chucks it none too delicately into the cart.
