Friday night, we took Londyn to get her ears pierced. We have been waiting for her to reach 3 months in anticipation for this momentous event. As planned, she had her jammies on, paci ready and a bit of Tylenol in her system for afterwards. She was such a trooper! When they pierced the first side- she didn't even flinch. Still trying to grasp what just happened, they sprung the next side on her and her paci fell out... followed by a cry.
Afterwards, I felt like the worst mom ever! But, then the cheesy part of me came out and in my mind I started to think... that these were her first earrings. She will be able to wear earrings after this day for some of her most precious moments that I will share with her. At her first school dance... at graduation... and on her wedding day.
