Regular followers of my Twitter feed will know that Sir hates having his fingernails cut. Toenails are fine, he will happily sit there and let me do it.. but not fingernails. Heaven knows what the difference is but he will fight, cry, scream and have a meltdown if I try to do his fingernails.
In order to try and minimise his upset I started cutting one everyday and after a few days he was “happier” with that – not happy but “happier”. He would still move his hand at the last minute..
Today I noticed his nails were getting long (think Wolverine from X-Men) and I asked if I could cut one. Well to be honest I bribed him with Pringles and offering to build his marble run for him.. but nonetheless he agreed.
He let me cut one nail and then to my amazement he let me cut a second! Two nails being cut at the same time with NO FUSS is unheard of! So I am very proud of my (not so)little X-Man today 😀
