My little girl is growing up!

I took Nevaeh to get her ears pierced yesterday. We have been talking about doing it but she has always been too scared. She woke up yesterday and said, "I am ready to get them pierced." So we headed to the mall and did it. She did not even flinch or shed a tear. I was so proud of her. They instructed her to clean them two times a day but she insists on four. I always thought she would need to be a little older to be able to take care of them but I now realize that she is completely capable and responsible to do it herself. By the way, inflation slapped me in the face during this adventure. I think getting my ears pierced was around $10 or so...... a big whopping $38!!!! Oh my... I didn't think it would be that much! I guess it has been awhile since I had been to Claire's!

I remember when I got my ears pierced. I don't think I was as brave as Nevaeh - I remember crying and even telling my mom I didn't want them pierced anymore after the lady did one ear! :)

I can't believe it costed you $38!! That's crazy! Inflation is hurting us all!

$38??? Are you kidding? That's unbelieveable! Guess I don't have to worry about that though since I don't have any girls! But, if my boys ever want an earring, I'm not paying for it!
