Most Definitely NOT a Mundane Monday

I don't think life has ever been busier.  I swear, my feet hit the ground running at 5:30 in the morning and I don't  have a chance to breath until about 10:30 at night.  But it's's a good kind of busy!  We officially close on our home on Friday so we have been busy packing and moving.  More on the move to come. 

I officially injured Aubrey Lane for the first time and let me just say it was traumatic.  For me.  She was fine.  Barely blinked an eye.  

I had 10 minutes before I had to leave for work and I just knew those 10 minutes would be ideal for cutting Aubrey's fingernails.  Something her daddy usually tackles, but I felt like I could conquer the world this morning, so I thought I'd give it a world.  First finger in...yes...the very first one.  I prick her skin on accident and it immediately begins puddling blood.  

I immediately start crying just because I can't bear to think I've hurt my baby.  Aubrey is oblivious...she just continues on trying to put her book in her mouth.  That dang finger would not stop bleeding for anything.  I swear you'd think I hit a major artery.  I was a was my bathroom.

Long story short, I was late for work and Aubrey still has 9 long finger nails plus one finger with a band aid on it. I'm not going to quit my day job to become a manicurist.  

On the plus side, Aubrey was fascinated by the band aid and spent all morning staring at it and talking to it!  Bless her heart-perhaps we need some new entertainment and toys!

 This photo has absolutely nothing to do with the post but it cracks me up.  It's her Austin Power's pose.

Happy Monday Everyone!


  1. HAHA! You are so funny! That last pic is hilarious! I love that she was talking to the bandaid! LOL

  2. I did the same thing when Evie was a baby. We were at Carl's parents house so it was even more of an issue. I felt horrible and Evie was fine BUT I still leave the trimming to Carl. I am too scared after that experience. Thinking of you during this week as you prepare to move, I know it's a lot but soon it will be over. I have been there several times and it's tough!
