Yesterday, you made the first of many decisions about your body. Your dad and I agreed when you were a baby that you could decide when/where/if you would pierce your ears. You have been talking about getting your ears pierced for a few months now and yesterday you took a brave and bold step and got them pierced.
I was so extremely proud of you for being brave and deciding on your own that you were ready. At the same exact time, I was so sad because you are growing up so fast and you are not my little baby girl anymore.
I am so proud of you. You are becoming a young girl that can make her own decisions, choose wisely and confidently, and not be afraid to tell me you are scared.
I'll tell you a little secret- I was scared too. I was scared for you and going through this experience. I was scared you wouldn't like the earrings and I was scared that you are old enough to make the decision.
I am so proud of you.
I love you so much my sweet girl and I am so excited for this big step you just took all on your own!
She climbed up into the chair all by herself
Marking her ears with the pen
Piercing her ears.
They did both at the same time.
A chocolate cake pop to help with the shock
And a smile
(she insisted on having the straw in the picture)
A sticker from her goody bag
Happy Wednesday y'all!
