My little princess has been asking to get her ears pierced for 3 weeks now. Every night before bed we would go through the same series of questions.
London: "Momma ears pierced, daddy's ears pierced, London ears pierced???"
Me: No. You don't have yours done. We can get yours done when you are ready.
Me: When you are ready.
London: I'm ready. Get um' done?
Me: Maybe this weekend.
So, finally Tommie said I can't keep telling her "this weekend" and not following through. But let me remind you, London doesn't let ANYONE near her ears. I fight every time we need to clean them and she often wins. Each night we would prepare her telling her that a lady will hold her ear and count to 3 and then she'd feel a POP! She would say "Ok".
I really doubted that she'd go through with it so I threw in the towel and went this past Saturday. My 2 year old sat like a champ and got them done.
She did look at me like I was the world's worst Mom for about 2 minutes until she looked in the mirror and exclaimed "London got earrings!"
My peanut. I'm so proud of her.
