5 Month Old Toenails...

There are just some things as new parents that Jim and I had to learn on our own. Like, you have to cut your baby's toenails, preferrably before they are 5 months old! We were given lots of books and parenting advice out the wazoo, but never, ever were we told we needed to cut his toenails. Who knew? I mean, we knew to cover him quickly when his weewee was exposed, to put a hat on in the cold, no peanut butter for the first year. What to Expect the First Year never mentions toenails!!!! It was a cool day and we had taken a stroll down on the National Mall in D.C. and for some reason I had Taylor's socks off and realized his toenails were so long they were curling down over his toes! Can you picture it! OH MY WORD. I couldn't find a way quick enough to blame this on Jim-but I mean, after all, he is supposed to be the leader of this family! J/K. You try clipping 5 month old toenails on a 5 month old-it isn't easy! So all you mamas and poppsies out there who are withholding advice from new parents for fear of information overload, just remember, sometimes the most basic principles of grooming a baby are lost in all the wash!
