Back in April, I told y’all about how I took my 4 year old to get her ears pierced. Suffice it to say that it didn’t happen. You guys gave me excellent advice on how you went about going for or waiting for earrings. We decided to wait.
Here we are a month later and she has been asking again. Constantly. Telling me she doesn’t care if it hurts, she wants earrings. We decided to go for it today, honestly thinking she’d back out again when we went there.
My pretty girl proved me wrong! She hopped up on the chair and took the earrings without as much as a flinch! We could see the determination in her eyes of how badly she wanted earrings. And so… let me show you one of our little princesses and her beautiful ears….
I definitely think the key is waiting until they are 100% absolutely positively sure and so are you. It’s okay to back off when you get there. Even if they change their mind after the first ear. It’s OKAY.
I felt horrible for the girl that went after my daughter. The mom was pressuring her and there was lots of screaming, crying, and bribery. I even went over to try and talk to the mom but she would have nothing of it. It broke my heart. I’m so glad we waited and my daughter is so thrilled with her earrings.
