Will It Hurt?

The moment my birthday girl woke up on her "special" day. Everyone in the family (including the boys) were asked that question.

This was the day she was getting her ears pierced! Honestly, she did great and after being asking that question about 100 times. She went for it!

We brought her sister for moral "support". Well, kinda of...when they were getting ready to pierce my daughter's ears...we couldn't find her sister. She was standing behind a shelf b/c she didn't want to see her sister cry.

Again...a few more times... "Will it hurt?"

Picking out her earrings...


And AGAIN....are you SURE it won't hurt?

Finally...it was all done and full of smiles! She did great and pretty little ears to show!

So cute! I wasn't allowed to get my ears pierced until by 13th birthday but totally chickened out. I didn't get them pierced until I was 19!
