If you've ever had a baby, you know what a challenge it is to clip the little finger and toe nails. I was given/read all sorts of advice. Clip the nails while the baby sleeps. Clip them after a bath. Have one parent hold the baby while the other clips the nails. I could go on and on. The one piece of advice I was never give: Wear protective gear!
Crazy I know, but as I was clipping Bubba's toe nails this week one of the little buggers flew up and into my eye! Luckily I was clipping them with him sitting in his high chair (a tip I was never given but makes clipping the toe nails so much easier because the baby can't grab at the nail clippers or your hands as the tray runs defense...add some cheerios and usually Bubba is quite content). So, I was able to run to the bathroom to extract above mentioned clipping before finishing up the rest of those little piggies.
