My little Cayna got her ears pierced today. It was a wild moment. She almost backed out - we had left the store and everything, but she was so sad - and I knew it was more disappointment than fear so we went back in and with some fancy talk, me wearing a silly hat and crazy sunglasses off the rack of the Claire's store - and with five people including one of the employees singing "Happy Birthday" while they shot the earrings through her little lobes, my almost six year-old got her wish! She looks so sweet and is so proud. At dinner she marveled, "I can't believe I got my ears pierced!"
I can't either, little girl.
