How do people have long fake nails if they have infants?

Don't you accidentally stab them with your nails?

I don't get this either. I think its a bit gross imagine the shit that would get scraped under those nails. And blowing noses, wiping eyes? Not very practical. I think the same thing about mums that wear short dresses and skirts, how is that comfortable when you have to bend over and squat down 50 times a day. There's a non spoken 'Mum uniform' for practical reasons.

 Squat down rather than bend or if your just at home bend over, who cares if the kids see your undies

I have really long natural nails, always have and i feel strange when i have to trim them. I guess after having them for so long you just get used to it and know how to avoid things like that, fake nails would be the same. You can still get baby poo under your nails if they are short 😂 and you wash your hands after regardless of your nails!

I don't but my sister does. She claims she's worn them all her life and gotten really good at being careful with them and treats them as an extension of her fingers??? Also she wears gloves for nappies.

 Does she wear gloves when she wipes her own bum?

 She probably uses toilet paper and being an adults she's probably quite good at not getting poo on her hands

 At least you'd like to think so

 Lol I'm guessing the person who wrote that comment gets shit all over their hands when wiping. It's okay. You'll learn to use toilet roll one day

 Being an adult, she shouldn’t have to wear gloves to change nappies.

 I know, she worked in child care for years and got into the habit. I think it's weird. She only uses one, on the wiping hand I guess.
