Toe Jam

Reason #348 NOT. TO. BITE. YOUR. TOENAILS!-- You will receive a strong reprimand from the doctor when she explains that incessant toenail biting causes PUSS INFECTED ingrown toenails.

Do you think it's a reflection on me that I have a 6 yr. old who feverishly gnaws at her fingernails and toenails like an addict? I mean, that couldn't possibly be her natural response to the environment she lives in, right? Right!? Just because she hides behind the chair so I can't see her biting doesn't mean anything. I just assume she's back there saying a prayer. Maybe she is asking to be saved from this family. That'd be weird. The waiting list to get in here is pretty long, so I'm not sure why she would chew her fingers down to stubs just to get out. Straight bliss in this house. Just ask Addie.

Nasty!!! Looks at the life of glamor we as moms lead. diapers, boogers, and puss infected ingrown toenails. Nice.

Too bad they do not make that yucky tasting nail polish anymore! Try bribing her with baccon. That has to work!

this is sad! Can she wear her shoe?Maybe this will stop her from eating her toenails. She is still adorable.
