I know what you mean by nails growing so fast. I actually don't mind clipping them. I tried asking SO to do them but he's afraid he'll end up hurting her so I am left with that task.

I've never been able to do stuff to my kids when they're asleep, they'll wake up! So far clipping Zachary's nails isn't too bad. I bribe my DD with nail polish after clipping if she's being difficult.

Neither Ryan nor I seem to mind when I clip his nails. He just sits on my lap and we watch TV while I do it.

However, he hates getting the boogers sucked out of his nose. I call it scream fest - it breaks my heart to hear him scream and cry like that but I have to get them out

Ugh...I nicked him the last time I did it and there was soooooo much blood for such a little wound. I also think I cried more than he did. So now I'm gunshy about doing it and make DH do it.

aawwwe poor him and YOU! I know ive been there, done that, the feeling is awful, but as you said, it is a little wound and it heals so quickly. FWIW, none of babies held it against me
