I've always thought it important to let my kids make their own decisions about their body. Even when it comes to ear piercing. I never took it upon myself to have their ears pierced when they was babies. I thought it rather cruel but that is only my opinion.
This morning Lil O told me she wants her ears pierced. Yes, just out of the blue it happened. I was thinking "What happened to my daughter?". My shy timid five year old daughter wants her ears pierced.
So, after school I am going to take her to get her ears pierced. I'm so proud of her for wanting to do this. It makes me realize that she is growing up into a lovely young lady. She was all excited and said, "I cannot wait to tell my friends I'm getting my ears pierced!"
WOW, I never saw this coming.
