Nasty Nails

We are sitting in church this week and I look over at my son's hands and I see this.

I have some quirks about hygiene and keeping my kids' nails trimmed is one of them.  I line them up about once every other week or less and trim fingers and toes.  It's a system that works for me and keeps all of them looking clean and fresh.

I feel like one of the signs that people will know if you are a good mother or not is the length of your kids' finger nails.  Weird-- I know.  But when you see a kid that has long gangly nails with lots of dirt caked in them I always wonder what the deal is with their mom.  Cut your nails people!

So now you know that I was completely mortified to have my son at church with troll fingers.  There I said it-- it's out there. 

How embarrassing!

LOL- we were just talking about this yesterday -- one of the ladies is a piano teacher and was saying how everyone's hands come in looking like so.

Also-- I just NOW found out you are sisters with Cheri. How did I NOT know this? My world is rocked with this new information.
