Seriously, who could ever harm this sweet face?
It's my job to protect this sweet baby boy, but what did I do? I caused his first boo-boo. I actually did this a few weeks ago, but I'm just now confessing via blog. I made him do this:
|No, I didn't take a picture immediately after I hurt him, this picture was just because he wasn't happy to be in his swing. Anyway.|
First fingernail. Sigh of relief. Ethan didn't flinch.
Second fingernail. My magnifying glass failed me, and I thought I was right under the fingernail and squeezed. I released, only to see a stream of blood coming from his finger and Ethan waking up SCREAMING. I quickly realized that I missed his fingernail completely and cut his finger! It bled for forever, and Ethan had to have his first little band-aid. We both cried for quite a while, only Ethan eventually stopped crying. Mommy didn't. My sweet baby was barely 2 weeks old, and I had injured him.
Two days ago, I FINALLY got enough courage to try again. Yes, that means Jason and I went an entire 6 weeks enduring miniature swords. My Mom helped me hold his hands, and told me to forget about the magnifying glass. It was making things TOO big, and giving a false sense of being in the right position. Within 10 minutes, Ethan's nails were clipped and this time there were no casualties!
So I admit it. I had my first ultimate Mom FAIL at 2 weeks.
