To Clip or Not to Clip

When Jem was an itty bitty baby I tried clipping his nails, but it did not turn out well. I clipped two nails and drew blood on BOTH fingers. I was horrified beyond words and never used nail clippers again. I have been filing Jem's nails ever since...until today! I clipped all ten nails and nary a drop of blood was shed. Yeah!!! A mommy milestone to be sure.

Have I mentioned how awesome my kid is???

My husband has never once cut the kids' nails. I always do it. When they were teeny tiny babies, I was too scared to use the nail clippers, so I'd bite their nails. Once I got over my own fear of those pesky nail clippers, it all went well.
