Ugh. I clipped Ali’s finger tonight when I was cutting her nails. She screamed. The in-real-actual-pain kind. I felt awful. It bled. We put this little band-aid on her finger. Like, ten minutes later it was gone and we then spent the next half hour worrying she’d swallowed it. But I found it stuck to a pillow. She got over it pretty quick and all it now well. But, seriously, this is exactly why I always put off cutting her nails in favor of them kind of tearing off on their own. So if my child ever has full blown talons, well you know why.

  1. Sad! When Shayla was around four to five months old, I accidenally scratched her on the nose like twice in two weeks and both times the scratches actually bled and I felt so horrible. I STILL don’t like cutting her nails because of this reason.

  2. Lol. I dunno, they were here in with a bunch of other band-aids. I think they’re the ones for, like, a blister or tiny cut on the finger or something.

  3. Ohhhhh. Sorry for you (she’s probably healed right?). I remember these times. I HATE that helpless, sad, guilty feeling. It happens when the kids get older too. Lately I’ve been accedently knocking my elbo’s into the kid’s heads. I think I’m alone fixing dinner when wham! someone was right behind me and I caught them with an elbo…!
    Love you!
