Piercing My Daughter
As some of you already know, for Sarah's 6th birthday the Farmer and I agreed that she could go to get her ears pierced. Sarah has been wanting this done ever since she could speak, and we have forever made her wait. Fearing that she would not be able to take care of them, or for that matter take the pain of getting them, I staved her off as long as I could. Well, as it turns out, the only one who could not take the pain, was her mother. She did not even shed a tear. Meanwhile I was sick to my stomach...
Now her little earlobes are gracefully adorned with tiny diamond and ruby flowers that she turns on the hour and she readily applies alcohol to to fight off any chance of infection. She is definitely a more responsible 6 yr old then I ever was.
The day of the piercing we also brought one of her friends with us and treated ourselves to manicures and pedicures. It was truly a "Girly" kind of day!
