  18. My 4th child is a girl and I can't tell you how many times she's been hurt. She had a thing with smashing her fingers ALL the time. At 2 she got them stuck in an elevator door (gone went the fingernail). She actually bit her own finger eating french fries. Yep she was 2 and no the nail didn't come off but it did turn black….I laugh as I type this on all the silly things she has done to herself…Good thing though, she has seemed to grow out of it. She's almost 10 and hasn't lost a nail in a while
