Several months ago, my 5.5 year old son, Callum, smashed his fingernail and ripped it out, cuticle and all.
I was told that because the nail and cuticle were not embedded in place, he would never grow another nail on that finger.
After I wrote that post… a dozen people emailed me and told me intriguing stories about their own broken fingernails and how their nails had grown back fine and dandy! I also received several comments from doctors and nurses who told me that yes, nails do grow back.
So today, my internet friends, I thought I’d share the bizarre and mundane details of my life to you.
Yes, my son proudly walked up to me and showed me his perfect little finger nail.
I said to him, “Yay. Now you can pick your nose!”
