The hardest part

The hardest part of parenting isn’t…

the sleepless nights (and days)

the soar (I mean sore) nipples

the responsibility

the crying

the changing of very dirty diapers

or even the thought of what it will cost to send them to college


It’s cutting their tiny little nails while they try to wiggle away from you.

  1. You know, I read it somewhere and then a week later a new parent I know was doing it and said the nurse at the hospital said it was the easiest way: Bite them off yourself. No joke!

  2. Yeah, I hated it when my nipples got sore, too. Oops, that was because …. never mind.

    We were told about biting them off, too. Or, clip them when the kid is napping.

  3. I agree, biting them off is MUCH easier! Also, you could try using an emery board and filing them every so often.

    The times I did try to trim my girls’ nails I inevitably ended up nicking them. Poor babies!

    Try it when he is asleep…that always worked for us!
