Baby Scissorhands

Someone please explain to me the scientific principle by which sweet precious chubby little baby hands suddenly transform into violent weapons. My baby just turned five months old, and already I have had to start wearing contacts because he keeps pulling my glasses off my face. And forget wearing my hair down, because when he gets a fistful and pulls… OW!  But what amazes (and terrifies) me most of all is the fingernails. Seriously, people, I have to cut them every single day. Otherwise, this beautiful little hand…

Beautiful Baby Hand

… manages to slice and dice me like a santoku knife!

Inevitably, if I forget to cut his nails, my husband or I will end up injured. And the thing is, every single time, I forget to be scared. I look at that angelic little face…

And I just have to hold him.

As I reach out for him, I remember…

He is Baby Scissorhands.

I start having flashbacks. Those hands. Those beautiful chubby hands. The nails. My face.

Second Thoughts

He’s coming at me so fast, I can’t think. Mommyyyyy…

Regular Hand


No, wait!

But it’s too late.

  4. Hilarious post! And that chubby little hand is so cute!

    Glad I could be an encouragement to your running! In the interest of full disclosure – it took me a long time to go from 1-2 miles to full marathons (and not everyone HAS to run a marathon). But I can remember running 5ks and being adequately challenged at that distance for several years before I tried my first 10k. Then several years later I trained for my first half marathon, and so on…

    C25k is a great program! I predict you’ll be hooked after a race or two!

    Hi there,
    Thanks for stopping by!! (and for your sweet comments!). I see you are a working mom – as am I. Always nice to see as I sometimes feel like there aren’t many of us who work and blog!! Enjoy your little one and I so get this post. I trim my kids nearly every time I bath them. (and watch out for the contacts, they still get you!)
