Getting my daughter’s ears pierced the second time around

31 Mar

If you keep up with my blog you know I have 3 boys and a girl so as a first time mom to a girl I was kind of worried about getting her ears pierced and who was going to do them. I noticed babies always had their ears pierced at a very young age but it seemed like a circumcision to me because their so innocent and fragile and don’t have a choice so I waited.

If I’m not mistaken my daughter was about 3 years old when I first attempted to get her ears pierced and it went by pretty good but she screamed up a storm. Everything was okay until the day the earrings came out and the new ones went in. The one’s I chose for her had a snap down like a small hoop earring and I snapped it down one day and it snapped her ear I didn’t know. It was bleeding and I was even scared. She was crying even more and that was the end of that.

After apologizing, cleaning her up, and making my daughter feel better I decided to let the hole close up and wait till she got older and see could decide if she wanted her ears pierced or not. Well she did. When she started school she said all the girls in her class has their ears pierced, and she sees me changing my earrings, and her grandmother just got her ears re-pierced so she would ask everyday.

Unlike me and my sister who had to wait to get our ears pierced till we were in our late teens because my father said we had enough holes in our bodies I gave my daughter the choice at an earlier age.I hated clip on earrings by the way. They pinched and never had a good selection.

She did very good this time. She didn’t want to hold anyone’s hand and didn’t cry at all. We were very proud. Mom, grandma, auntie, and brother were there for support.

I was able to get a few pictures. I will be taking a lot more. She looks so different now with them. My cutie pie!!!!
