toddler tip

Randomly think of things I wish someone would give me tips on for parenting or mothering - nothing too serious, more practical stuff so, I thought I would share some of my 1.5 years of parenting knowledge with you once and a while.  Fun right?

Q: How do I get my toddler's nails clipped without drawing blood or without a screaming tantrum?

Tip: Strap or ummm, put them in their high chair or booster seat and give them something good to eat.  And usually for an extra distraction I turn on Word World :)  This is how I get Norah's toe nails clipped and for the fingers... I wait until they start to tear off (kids nails are usually too soft to actually break).

Happy clipping!

In other amazing news... we got a new picture of our baby girl!!!!!!!!!  She has a full head of beautiful hair - it's so much longer than the last pictures we have!  WE LOVE IT!  I wish I could post a picture for you to drool over :)

I can't WAIT to see the new picture! And I love your nail-clipping strategy as well. My little one is a goof and likes watching me do it (weird, I know). After the fingernails are done she takes off her socks and asks about her toes. Hmmm.
