MORAL OF THAT STORY: Pay the $8 to have someone take care of your foot needs whilst preggo and avoid bloodshed. It's worth the money.
Bonus chat with my mother about grooming:
Mom: Hope you have a good day, how do your feet look? You need to make an appointment for the week before delivery, the doctor may as well have something interesting to look at.
Me: I got them a bright orange/coral color. They're pretty since I'm tan. I'll be sure to be well groomed and pedicured for the birth.
Mom: Need your hair trimmed too as you will not have much time for a little while after. Pamper yourself a little.
Me: Oh, mother. Yes I know. I have a haircut scheduled for the day before the shower. I'm sure I can get another trim prior to pushing.
Mom: I could do it in the hospital to kill some time.
Me: I'm sure. I have childhood photographs that make it illegal for you to be in possession of scissors near my hair.
Mom: go to hell, lol. Talk to you later
Me: love you!!! xoxo
