I don’t think that it was in mommy’s plan for Ardynn to get her ears pierced at age 2. After all, she could barely accept that I got mine at age 4…. but Ardynn had a different idea. Our little bean has been asking mommy for weeks about getting her “e-rings”. She would constantly point to my ears or mommy’s ears & say, “e-rings, pitty” (aka: “earrings pretty) or “ah-den, e-rings, ok!?” (aka: “ardynn earrings, ok!?”). One Saturday afternoon, daddy finally offered to take her to the mall to get her ears pierced… and she jumped at the idea.
Needless to say, she was a wee bit more skittish when we actually made her sit in the chair, but all in all – she was great. She easily let the ladies clean ‘n’ mark her ears & she didn’t even flinch as they put the little guns up to her. Now, I’m not going to lie… just after they shot those suckers into her lobes, she let out a scream that I am quite sure they heard all the way at the food court… but it only lasted a few minutes & she was all better.
Our little bean looks a little more grown up these days with some “bling” on her pretty little ears. I still don’t think mommy knows what to think about it all, but the bean is super proud of her studs & loves the way they “parkle” (aka: sparkle).
