YANBU, I agree with you. My 3 year old son loves his nails painted, the pinker the better! I only let him do it during school holidays. DH doesn't mention it but I've had plenty of derogatory comments from my mum, friends, etc. I just say, "did you mean to be so sexist?!" Or "we don't believe in gender stereotyping in our house". Or something like that!
Nothing wrong with it at all! Paint them all, he's only a child, its not doing any harm. My lovely nephew who is 6 loves to put heels on, bracelets, necklaces and even clips and hairbands in his hair! I love that he doesn't care, its only us adults that have problems with it! X
Easier to let him have some nail varnish than the alternative... DS's 2 friends turned up at ours not long ago with marker pen coloured nails as they were curious and wanted to see what it would look like. Apparently the word 'permanent' is just there to fill space on the label rather than a warning that it won't come off... They are 12 btw... Lovely lads but common sense is a little lacking! YANBU x
Yanbu all the madboys have had nail polish on fingers and toes if they wanted it, ds3 and ds4 still like it. Dd is two and likes to have her toe nails painted if she sees me doing mine its just play and a bit of fun
My DS used to love nail varnish - he also used to love dressing up and putting on shows for me. That boy could put together a cracking outfit and walks far better than me in my heels! He is now a monstrous rugger bugger, but still has an eye for the sparkle!
