Mommies can say anything three million times and it just doesn't register.  "Don't climb up there..."  "Don't touch, that's hot", "Don't get on chat rooms without my knowledge..."  the list goes on and on.  I've said "Don't walk around barefoot, you can get a splinter on the wood floors!"  a zillion times.  Not exaggerating!  A zillion times.  So on Saturday, when Shiri, Orin and Nomi were here for the weekend, we here a sudden scream, a wail and then heavy sobbing.  Nina, no shoes on, was dragging her feet and a splinter, a big one at that, lodged into the sole of her foot.  We all ran over, all five of us, (Nomi didn't seem too interested), and started throwing all sorts of advice around.  Soak the foot, cut the foot, heat the foot, ice the foot.  To make a long story short, we tried it all but the good-for-nothing piece of wood is still there.  If it doesn't come out by this afternoon, we are off to the doc's office. 

Nomi witnessed it all.  She is 7 months old, mind you,  (TODAY!), but still...  do you think she learned how important it is to listen to Mommy?

Epson Salts. Soaking in epson salts will raise the splinters to the surface so you can pull them out.
