My Little Girl Is Growing Up, HELP!

Over the weekend my daughter got her ears peirced!  I can't believe it.  She has been talking about it for months and has finally gotten the courage to do it.  She loves to check out your earrings and likes beautiful jewelry.  We went a few months ago to have it done and the girls in the jewelry shop were explaining to her what they were going to do and she sort of chickened out.  Then she stopped talking about it for a little while.  I didn't want to get her ears peirced when she was a baby because I always wanted my kids to decide when they wanted to do it and I thought that maybe they would have a different appreciation for it.  So, on Friday when I picked her up from school she told me she wanted to go get her ears peirced that night.  We made plans to take her over the weekend (I secretly thought maybe she would chicken out againg).  She talked about it all weekend and told everybody.  We took her to the jewelry shop and at this point I was still waiting for her to back out.
Waiting to get them peirced

The girls are explaining to her what they are going to do and she takes Daddy's hand (still waiting for her to change her mind):

The actual peircing:

Her reaction right after:
She didn't cry at all!  I think she wanted to instantly reach up and rub the "pinch" away.  But she did sooooo good.  I was so proud of her.

The beautiful earring:
A little while after she had it done she said to me "I'm proud of myself for getting my ears peirced."  I said "you should be proud of yourself, and I am very proud of you too."  She replied "yep, and no more fake earrings."  (;

  1. Awww! I'm so glad she handled it well :) And her new earrings look so pretty!

  2. Too cute! My girls are scared to take the plunge, so maybe I'll show them this post.

    And thanks SO much for wishing my dad a happy b-day!
