Just about 6 months ago we were all in Claire’s when Kaydence first got her ears pierced. She was such a brave little girl and didn’t even cry although I was fully prepared for it to happen. Unfortunately I got a bit lazy about keeping earrings in her ears and the holes closed up. Then out of the blue yesterday she’s begging to have earrings again. Daddy can’t ever say no to his little girl so we packed the girls up to visit Claire’s again to have them redone. Somewhere along the way Kaydee managed to talk Emma into getting hers done too.
She’ only a couple of months away from her fourth birthday so we figured why not.
And then she got in the chair.
Oh boy, poor thing started to get really worried seeing the piercing gun, especially after she just saw an itty bitty baby scream her little head off from the process and even a teenage girl jumping in her seat trying not to cry. It really wasn’t the best timing on our part.
What happened next nearly traumatized us both. Against my better judgement I let two associates pierce both her ears at the same time. This baby bawled like you wouldn’t believe. As hard as she cried, it made me feel like the worst parent in the world. Even worse the gun got stuck on one of her ears for a few seconds and had her freaking out.
But the initial shock and pain wore off and she was just fine, even proud of her new daisy earrings.
So now my baby Emma joins the big girl club with her very first real earrings.
