dark nails for little handles


As soon as B saw my newly painted goth nails, she asked me to paint hers. I love her little handles, they are so sweet...see that thumb, she still sucks it (almost 4 yrs. old). I rarely paint that thumb b/c of the thumb sucking, but she begged for me too.
When B was born she had "trigger thumb", the thumb was bent and stuck at the knuckle. I didn't even notice it for about a week after bringing her home from the hospital. I took her to a hand surgeon and he said the tendons were frozen; which caused the thumb to not move out of position. He also said to come back in a year b/c they work themselves out sometimes. Well, little sister began sucking her little trigger thumb soon after and she worked it out. I remember nursing her every evening before bed and I would sit and rub and pull on her thumb while she was relaxed...that may have helped as well.
I just love little hands and feet! Don't you? Have a loverly day ya hear, kb

Little hands and feet are the best. I heard some advice years ago that always comes in handy when I get frustrated with Mini Mike. Looking at their tiny hands/feet (or picture them when they WERE tiny) puts it all in perspective and makes it hard to be angry at something that sweet.

No, I have not done a THING with my bedroom and it SO needs it. Yes, we need to inspire eachother. Maybe we can start pulling tear sheets for one another and the mail them? That way we cna both keep them in a file...you know to stew on. Ha! Ha! And still take forever to actually DO something! Ha! Ha! Shoot me an email when you get a chance, you can get it from my profile. :o)

Hey! Found your blog through "Mabel's House" - my girls love when I paint their toes. Pink. They'll say, "I want PINK toes" all squeaky-like. Can't resist!
