My Baby Becomes A Big Girl

The topic of piercing ears comes up every now and again. I always thought when I had a little girl I would get them done for her as a baby, but I just never got around to getting Sydney's done. So we've talked about it from time to time, but she always said, when she was bigger. Then at dinner tonight, she asked what it felt like and I kinda showed her, and she said "I want to get my ears pierced".. I was like really? She said YES... We double checked to make sure and that SHE wanted to.. She said yes and she did. So after dinner, we hit the mall, aka Clarie's, and got her ears pierced. She was very excited, jumped in the chair. I explained what would happen ahead of time and she picked out some cute diamond stars. Very good choice. Then, the girl made the dots and we were good. She got the first gun to pierce and Sydney got a big scared. The first hole was done.. Then the tears came.. It took a minute or two or talking to and then boom.. hole #2 was done.. We did buy a couple of pairs of new earrings, but those won't be used for 6 weeks. Afterwards, Sydney was so happy and excited. The tears has passed and my little girl is growing up...
