I'm a bad Mommy. . . .

OK, I've cut Ellie's fingernails several times....they grow super fast. Last time I did it though, I cut 3 fingers, so today I was being extra careful. Well, I did it again. I've only attempted one hand so far, and I cut 2 fingers!!!

Once she was over the initial shock of knowing that her own mommy would hurt her, she was fine. She was playing on her play mat and when I looked at her again, it looked like a murder scene....blood everywhere!

You wouldn't think such a tiny finger, with such a tiny cut, could create such a scene!!! If you look at the pictures you'll see the bloody play mat and her bloody jammies too. I am a bad mommy. . . .Although, she did smile again!

Holy Canoli! There's enough blood to make your blog R rated! LOL!
I bet every mommy has done that! It's amazing how much a little finger can bleed! Can you imagine how much blood I saw when David ran onto a broken bottle and cut his whole foot open? He was about 6 when he did that! I couldn't believe he had any blood left in him by the time we got to the hospital! Life as a mommy...hang on kiddo!

If you are a bad mommy, then I am a bad daddy. I dropped my young daughter in the bath tub, and she went under water. Poor kid was blowing bubbles for about an hour afterwards.

OK, its definitely a LOT worse looking than it really was. She only let out a tiny yelp, then she was over it. The one finger, her thumb, just wouldn't stop bleeding. I did get the other hand today...and no blood!!!
