She started talking about it on Sunday
"Mom, I am ready to get my ears pierced" Can we go tomorrow?
Every day she asked... "can we go today?"
This from the girl who was never, ever, ever going to get her ears pierced. When she makes up her mind she is determined to see it through.
(how can I get that to translate into chores....?)
She had so many butterflies in her tummy I thought she was going to back out.
She knew just which ones she wanted too -
Don't be fooled by the above photo. This girl of mine was so brave. She closed her eyes tight and counted 1...2...3..4..5.. and by 30 it was totally finished. Not one tear, not one flinch, not one owww. Just calm and collected counting and then - a huge huge smile.
I don't know who was more impressed. Me or the lady that did it.
"I just LOVE them"
I can't believe I got pierced ears"
"I am so happy"
"Don't forget we have to clean them"
"I think Daddy will LOVE my earrings"
"I can't wait to show EVERYONE"
"You can put the pictured on the computer so everyone can see"
