In my own words....OWCH!

After last Wednesday's Wordless Wednesday post Mommy got lots of questions on how I did when I got my ears pierced. So, Mommy thought I should tell you in my own words...well, in the words I would use if I had any...

What a cruel April Fools joke. Mommy took me to a store full of sparkly, pretty, shiny things. Oh, how I loved reaching at and touching the bracelets, necklaces and earrings on display in the store. Everything was so pretty and girlie. Even Anderson liked looking at all the bling bling.

Mommy seemed a bit nervous. She talked for quite awhile with the young girl that worked in the store. I thought the girl was funny because she had a shiny thing in her nose, eyebrow and lots of shiny things in each of her ears.

Mommy asked lots of questions. She seemed very interested to know if something could be done "both at the same time." I did not really understand all the grown up talk. But, Mommy learned that "both at the same time" is actually against the rules since it would mean two different people preforming the task. I was not sure what task they were talking about, but Mommy seemed to agree with the young hole-y girl and finally said, "OK. Let's do it!" Then she signed some papers.

I got excited when Mommy showed me some cute little purple shiny things. Mommy said it was my birthstone and that they would look so cute. I giggled and squealed and got excited.

Then Mommy started telling me that she hoped she could "do this". I still did not understand what "this" was, but it was apparent that "this" was causing Mommy some anxiety. So, I took my cue and started to act upset when Mommy tried to take what she called "before photos".

Then I got to sit on Mommy's lap on a tall chair. The young girl then tilted my head and put a little mark on my ear. I cooperated, but could tell something was about to happen. Then Mommy wrapped one arm around my arms and body and placed one hand on my head. Then Mommy closed her eyes tight and tensed all up.

BANG....sharp pain....I start to whimper, looking around...then Mommy pulls out her booby and I get an unexpected mid-day snack... YUMMY...all the while Mommy was telling me what a big girl I was being.

Suddenly Mommy pulls me off the booby and sits me up. The strange girl uses the marker on my other ear. Hmmmmm... this resulted in a bit of pain a few moments ago...I start to squirm. Mommy holds on tight and BANG...more sharp pain.

But, before I could cry, Mommy lets me continue my mid-day snack. YUMMY....

When I finally finish, Mommy shows me a mirror and I see the pretty purple shiny things in my ears. In my ears. Can you believe it? I start to laugh and kick my feet. The strange girl from the store gives me a pretty bag to hold. I really liked chewing on the string handles.

Mommy is all smiles and keeps telling me that "we did it" and that "I was very brave". I am not sure why she is all gushy over me, but heck, it made me happy. Then I got to share a cookie with Anderson and Mommy let me walk all the way around the mall. It was so much fun!

Now three or four times a day my Mommy wants to wash my ears and play with my shiny purple things. She thinks it is fun to push them back and forth and twirl them around. I beg to differ and try to tell her how much I do not like her playing with my pretty earrings by screaming and squirming. She does not seem to understand and keeps telling me it will be a long 6 weeks.

I like seeing my new earrings and I think they look pretty. Best of all, I completely forget how much those two BANGs hurt.

Daddy really likes my pretty ears and sometimes plays with them while Mommy holds me still. He says I am a pretty girl with pretty pierced ears...and that I am only allowed to have pierced ears. Daddy says I am not allowed to pierce any other body part...I am OK with that...for now...

Great retelling! Way harder on Mommy than on her!

I love pierced ears! I got so many people telling me I should wait till my daughter was old enough to tell me she wanted them.

I remember getting mine pierced at 4- when I was old enough to ask for them, and how scary & painful it was. I ended up with lopsided earrings which had to be redone later.

As that young of an age, she won't even remember it. And if she's one of those rare girls that doesn't want earrings- the holes can close. I'm glad I had my daughter's done early!

Yes, definitely harder for us than them. :)

I got my ears pierced when I was a teenager. I would have preferred to have them done when I was a baby instead.

I love a little girl in earrings - all my girls have their ears pierced. Cute story. See you - Kellan

How do you keep her from pulling them out? I would be afraid that they would get ripped out. Of course I'm dealing with three boys, so everything gets ripped. ??

That was too cute coming from her prospective. Such a brave mommy!

Smart mommy with the booby!

Course we told Toots she has to wait until she's 10 and I was kind of planning on weaning her before then.
