Are You Ready for a Challenge?

That's what my 5 year old said to me tonight. "Mom, are you ready for a challenge?"

I was cutting his toenails at the time so the question seemed out of the ordinary to me. But not to him. He said, "The big toenail is huge! It's a real challenge."

Sure enough, the big toenail was bigger than the others. Whew.... I'm glad to report that I was up for the challenge.

lol! Big toes do present a nail clipping challenge - he's right on that!

I'm still laughing!

My mom used to try to crack my toes after she cut my nails. I'm very ticklish and would scream. I was scared I would kick her in the face so I would yell at her to stop. Thankfully I never did. Just giving you a warning if you try anything funny with your kids' feet. They might not have as much control as I did.
