Puddin has this habit.
I guess it's one a lot of kids had, including me.
But like most parents, we want better for our kids.
So, Puddin bites her nails. Or picks at them. I have never seen her "chewing" on them.
I usually just see the nubs.
But- Puddin wants her nails painted B.A.D.
I've looked everywhere for the nasty stuff that goes on your nails... the stuff that tastes so bad it makes you stop chewing. But, I can't find it.
So, I resorted to good old fashioned will power.
I told her if she would let her nails grow so I could see the "white part" then we would go buy her some nail polish and paint her nails.
She loved picking out just the perfect color of pink and getting her nails all done!
I love it when things go according to plan!
