I am a cannibal

2 year old Corinne sits on the kitchen table, carefully holding her fingers spread apart as her Mommy explained, so that her freshly painted sweetheart pink nails don't touch each other. I sit at her feet, putting the teensiest drops of polish on her itty bitty toenails. She shakes her head slowly and wistfully sighs...

"You can't eat nail polish, Mommy..."

Too true, my dear. It's one of those big disappointments in life. As pretty as nail polish is and as much as you'd LIKE to lick it off your nails, you just can't. It's almost as unfair as my huge desire to simply devour my children.

They're so beautifully delicious, how could I NOT?
