She used to fight when I trim her nails. She'd pull her hand away with all her might. If I had a good grip on her, she'd slump her body on the floor and cry. It's not an easy job. Her constant moving scares me to death of cutting off her skin! This is one task of motherhood that is very challenging to me.
This nail-clipping scenario went on for months. But GOOD NEWS! For a month now, she didn't struggle against me (woo-hoooo). I don't know what happened. It's like a miracle. She still attempts to pull her hand away sometimes. But the force she exerts in doing so is not as intense compared before. I just have to calm her down by constantly talking or singing to her. She gets praises from me after I've done my task. Mama tells her what a good girl she is. That must swells her heart. :) I am so happy of this new development. I just hope that there's no more fighting when it's nail grooming time or Mama is going to have nightmares again.
