Yesterday I told her that this week's Woo Hoo Wednesday was going to be a Spa Day. I can't even begin to explain how excited she was. She picked out the nail polish and book she was going to read during her pedicure LAST night before bed. In classic Bennet she talked about it non-stop.
Grandma Barb gave the girls some fancy (my favorite) Lush bath salts so we used them tonight. It added pink glitter to the water. Talk about a hit! I gave them each a little leg/foot massage with lotion and polished their piggies.
Side note- as of late Scout has declared that not only does she need to do everything Bennet does but she also must do everything herself. She picked out her outfit for today and after the beginnings of a tantrum started when I suggested something warmer I decided it wasn't a battle I needed to fight today.
Bennet wanted a mud mask but I wasn't that crazy. I whipped up a yogurt/cucumber facial. She was hilarious. "Mom- it's so cold and refreshing. Do I get those cucumbers on my eyes too? Cool!" When I asked Scout if she wanted a facial too she quickly answered NO :)
Then it was time for Strawberry Smoothies. Another thing Bennet has been requesting (over and over). I made a little slit in the strawberries to place on the side of their glasses. Move over Tom Cruise there's a new bartender in town! I wonder if Bennet is at the age where she will remember these little things when she's older.
As usual I made too much so I just put the extra mix into popsicle molds. Brilliant!
Bennet's summary of the day so far? "Mom- this is the BEST Spa Day EVER!" Thanks kiddo. And for less than $10 total we can do it often. We wrapped up the itinerary with a calming bubble bath. Very appropriate since I had to get yogurt out of their hair.
