It Doesn't Get Any Better Than This

My daughter was ready to get her ears "done" yesterday. We couldn't say "pierce" because that made them (the ears) very nervous. So we did it, she did great and because she has talked about nothing else in the past 24 hours, I decided to give her the opportunity to capture her thoughts on paper. The thoughts will go into her "Special Things" drawer and now electronically here.

Tell me about what it was like getting your ears pierced yesterday.

Ok, it was scary. I was shy. It hurt and it felt warm when I was done. When you are done, you get really proud of yourself and when you get it done, your parents are really proud of you any time you do it. When you are done, you get earrings and you can wear them when your beginning earrings are done.

Where you nervous? Yes

Is there anything else you want to say?

You don’t ever have to get your ears pierced if you don’t want to and if you do, it is a big responsibility to try to not get infected. Make sure you twist your earrings enough so that the skin won’t heal.

Now, all we need is Dad to get his deer (for himself and the kid) and all will be well for the family!
