Blooop



Here's my girl Before:)



This is the word we have been using for 2 months. Why you ask? Well let me tell you. Lucy has been asking to get her ear pierced for about 2 years. We told her at first that she had to stop sucking her fingers. Soon after we changed it. We said she had to stop sucking her fingers or wait till she was 4 which ever came first. Knowing full well that it would be turning 4 when she got them. We are OK that she wants to suck her fingers till she gets married. JK. I think:) Well she will be turning 4 next Wednesday. And since her daddy will not be here we decided today was the day. We were told to make sure and have 2 people there to do it at the same time. Many have told us that they did not and left with only 1 earring. So we called our local Wal-Mart and they had 4 people working today. So we gave her Tylenol, pinkie, and a snack and head to the big"W". She had so much fun picking out her earrings. But when the ladies started to put on surgical gloves. The " I don't want them anymore...I'm too scared....Forget it...No daddy" came out. After many many many OK like 4 suckers and lots of negotiating she was tricked. The lady was good. She told Lucy they were going to hold the triggers on her ears. They did then nodded at each other and clicked away. Tears followed and shock set in. Then another sucker and certificate for BRAVERY was given and all was well. She is so happy. Her daddy should also get a certificate because he sat with her the whole time. He promised her ice cream. And just held her hand. I was visiting with friend trying to distract the other 7 children with us from watching. And ready to snap away. I almost missed it but here you go. Some pics of my sweet princess with new earrings!!


The meeting of the ladies.




"No daddy No"




OK mark my ears.



"Nope I don't want them!!"




This was the deed. Notice the eyes of the lady on the left of Bryce she is waiting for the NOD!!




It happened........




Keep your suckers....sniff..sniff....




Tears are gone. Sucker and certificate in hand. And happy is the girl with PINK BUTTERFLY earrings!!




She is just too BEAUTIFUL!!

She did, yey! If you have to put earrings in little 'guns' to pierce them, I'd be scared too. Mine were done my a doctor, go figure. Who does that anymore?? The 'guns' would've been way more traumatic than the doc. She was braver than I. And has pink butterflies to show for it. :)

I was 7 when I got my ears pierced. And it hurt like the dickens! I jumped so high out of the chair, and very nearly left with only one earring.

Cute!
After Maya got her ears pierced last year, we decided that 10 was the magic age. So now, Elena has started asking to get her ears pierced. Kyle says she's not ready since she probably won't remember to care for them every day. (Maya faithfully alcoholed her ears every night for three months.) I tend to agree with him.
We'll see. . .
