Up until December 7th, Natalie was dead set against getting her ears pierced. Then we bought her some clip-on earrings and the possibility of ALL THOSE EARRINGS swayed her decision. She made the decision that she wanted pierced ears. But boy-oh-boy was there quite the scene at home after she made this decision. LOTS of crying and carrying on, but she wasn't changing her mind.
The next day we were at the outlet mall, and discovered that there was a Claire's there. She said she was ready, so we went in and made her earring choice selection. Then reality set in, and the tears and worry resurfaced. But she still didn't waver on her decision. She pulled through like a champ, and I'm so proud of her she's been very diligent in cleaning and caring for them. Plus she looks so stinkin' cute with her new sparkle! P.S. "Free piercing" with purchase of earrings = $50+!!!
