Finally that moment came, which I've been dreading ever since we noticed how fast Baby's finger nails grow.
I accidentally clipped off a tiny bit of Baby's finger.
All the "I'm so sorry"'s in the world didn't make any difference to my little girl, who shrieked in surprise and pain; she'd been right all along to resist my attempts to cut her nails, hadn't she?
The timing couldn't have been worse. It was just before her morning nap time and all hope of her putting herself to sleep went out the window.
Please excuse me while I flagellate myself.
