I was actually happy when I found out I was going to be pregnant in the summer. While yes it’s hot, it’s much easier, in my opinion, to dress. I get to wear flowing maxi dresses, shorts and tank tops, and longer shirts with leggings. This has saved me a ton of money since I haven’t had to buy a lot of “maternity clothes”.

The problem with it being summer, is I feel the need to keep my toes painted. While, yes, I could easily go get a pedicure and have someone do it for me, but trying to save money, that’s not really an option for me. Luckily polish tends to stay on my toenails for a long time, so I don’t have to do it often.
Last week, I got some super cute new purple polish and was dying to try it out. I’m only 24 weeks, so I wasn’t thinking I’d have to much of a problem. Boy, was I wrong.
First, I tried to bend my knee to my chest, like I normally do. Not only was that uncomfortable to me, the baby must not have liked it because she started kicking me. What I found worked best was I brought out the ironing board and bent my knee to the side of my belly. Having the ironing board (you could also use a table) allowed me to not have to bend down at all and seemed to work.
I’m pretty sure the next time I decide to change the color, Andrew will be painting my toes. (Shhhh….he doesn’t know this yet!!).
