Several months ago, Abby talked to Sarah about getting her ears pierced when she was five (the post about it is here). She warned Sarah about how it hurt and so Sarah decided not to get it done.
But last month, when we talked about her birthday coming up and how she was going to be five, Sarah said she was going to get her ears pierced. We talked at length about it and she was determined to get it done.
Today was the big day.
The girls, Hantie and I went to the mall. First we tried on some new dresses – and bought some. Then Sarah walked into the shoe store and we walked out with new shoes for them. Then we went to the ear piercing pagoda. I filled out the paperwork and got ready while we waited for the second employee to come in to work. With someone as young as Sarah, you have to get both ears pierced at the same time.
She likes showing them off, now, but is still talking about the pain. It was even hard for her to look at these pictures. But I know the pain will wear off in a few days and she will love having them! “Like Mama! and Hammy (Abby)!”
I am proud of my big girl! And just a little sad that she is getting so big so fast.
