Don't Read This Post if You Have Issues With Feet

Brigham has gnarly toenails. Seriously gnarly toenails. I have intentions of clipping them more often, but he makes such a big deal of it that I usually leave them alone rather than fight with him over it.

This morning when I looked at them I decided that not only was it worth a fight, my ability to think of myself as a good mom hinged on clipping these toenails TODAY. I'm wishing I took a before picture, but for your sakes it's good that I didn't.

I took Brigham outside for the clipping so I wouldn't have to clean up the residue. He made it half way through the job before the agony of it all became too much for him. "Could I at least have a sleeping pill for this?!"

He and my Joe are two peas in a pod. Joseph has Howard Hughes toenails, and they really gross me out because they're always full of things from outside. blech!

He seriously asked for a sleeping pill? That is hilarious! You know- be thankful for the little things. At least he's not a girl with those gnarly toenails. Can you imagine her embarrassment if that were the case?s
