have you ever?

I think I scratched Livvie's face. I'm not sure if I did, but either she did, or I did.

Either I did it as I was buckling her into her car seat, or else she did it herself, while in her car seat.

Either way, doesn't it look awful? As if getting a whole mouthful of teeth isn't enough to cry about, how about a large scratch?

To make myself feel better, I like to remember when my hubby scratched Avery's nose as she was an infant by total accident. She was in her swing, and he was putting a blanket on her, and his nail caught her nose....I don't like to remember it, I shouldn't say just helps me remember that I'm not the only one who harms our children by accident...:)

Oh, you're not alone on this one. I caught my kids a few time with my wedding ring. Now when I'm at home, I take it off.

When Brooklyn was first born, and I mean the day we brought her home from the hospital, I noticed her fingernails were really, super long and jagged, so what did I do? I grabbed the baby nail clippers. I didn't know, it wasn't in any books I read nor was it something I got as a piece of advice, that the nail is attached to the finger still. I started to trim one nail and her little finger started to bleed and bleed and bleed. It took forever for it to stop and I was crying the whole time claiming how I had injured my newborn. All I wanted to do was try and prevent her from scratching her own face. Lesson learned. For this kiddo, I won't be trimming any nails for a long time!

Oh man, I once knicked Isaac's fingernail with my razor! He was sitting in the tub with me at the time when he was a young baby, but able to sit of course. He never really reached for stuff that were far out of reach...but this ONE time as I was shaving, he lunged for the razor and knicked his fingernail! I felt horrible!! Needless to say, I never shaved near him again! Good thing they are young enough to forget it :)

btw, my blog is private, send me an email to and I'll add you to my list of readers! That is...if you WANT to keep reading :) haha

Take care!
