Wordless Wednesday – Painted Nails for the First Day of First Grade

by Susan

Julia loves getting fancy – especially for the first day of first grade.

Julia had asked if I’d paint her fingernails for the first day of school (I usually only do her toenails), but we forgot and as she was laying in bed she remembered. The softy parent that I am, I let her get back up and we painted her nails quickly.

Mom Bloggers (and Dad Bloggers too!) post a photo on your site, link up and find others… Wordless Wednesday is tons of fun. (And I know it says “wordless” but I just can’t bear to not write anything! If I had created it, I probably would have named it something different! LOL So feel to link up your word-full or word-less Wednesday photos!)

Leave the URL to your photo (clearly mine are never truly “wordless”) and then visit others!

Here is a fun thumbnail linky:

And here is a basic linky if you prefer your linkies the good old fashioned way!

Thanks to Uisce for creating Wordless Wednesday.

Nothing like pink painted nails to get first grade off to an awesome start. Love her color coordinated look.

Painted nails are essential for the first day of first grade:-)

Her smile says it all! And the softy in me would have let her get back up to paint them, too. ;)


15 Amy September 7, 2011 at 7:01 am

Awww She looks like she’s ALL set. I love the bright colors in her outfit.


16 Dexie September 7, 2011 at 7:33 am

Very very pretty pink nails. Love the whole outfit and that smile :)


17 Dominique September 7, 2011 at 8:10 am

Cool..painted nails. Are they allowed to go to school in that? Here painting of nails are not allowed for students.


18 Kim September 7, 2011 at 8:34 am

Very cute. My MJ loves her nails painted but she has to do it herself and well her whole finger gets painted. Since it washes off the skin and stays on the nails let her do it. Then she likes to peel it off since I only let her use the cheap kid kind.

Special times she gets to have mommy’s nail polish that stays on longer.

Cute! Did you use piggy paint?


20 Janelle September 7, 2011 at 9:14 am

Sounds like my daughter…she wanted painted nails this year, too, for first grade!


21 Run DMT September 7, 2011 at 9:23 am

So stylish! and cute :)


24 Kristenkj September 7, 2011 at 12:33 pm

My goodness, she is fancy! My 4 year old would love to have her nails done, but other than that, she’d rather run around with her hair a mess, no shoes, and no shirt!!! She’s such a b***er!


25 Nancy September 7, 2011 at 1:07 pm

Thanks for hosting! Have a great week! :)


26 The Gang's Momma September 7, 2011 at 2:23 pm

I’m IN! Better late than never…. But I’m working on a big, huge learning curve having taken a part time job sitting in my home for two little ones. So, I’m just thrilled I got mine up at all :)

It’s all about Li’l E’s first day… rain or shine.



27 Cathi September 7, 2011 at 6:35 pm
