Strange question

How often do you cut your children's nails?
One of my kids needs it maybe every other week but I have to cut his brothers nails at least three times a week because they grow so fast. Is that normal?
I swear this kid could be wolverines unknown child.

DS bites his nails in his sleep. I have not had to cut them since he was about 2 and he is 9 now.

DD likes her nails a little longer so I only trim then every few weeks if I need to.

Maybe that's why I don't have to cut the older ones nails very often, I've caught him biting his nails a lot.
But my younger one has insane nails, they are manicure long after just a few days. Honestly I'm a little jealous. I have lovely nails, they are shaped perfectly and he inherited my nail shape. But his are so strong! I have to buy new clippers all the times. Mine break like paper.

DS1's nails grow super fast, but he trims them himself - dh calls them vampire nails which I guess is a movie reference? lol I don't know. My other two kids probably 3-4xs a month.

I was seriously going to post this today!

I trim DD's nails probably every three to four days - sometimes it seems like they grow quicker than usual.  

The little boy I babysit, though, his nails grow at warp speed and his mom doesn't clip them often, so I asked if she minded me doing it because he's at his grabbing phase and leaves cuts all over his and DD's face.
