Sugie got her ears pierced a few weeks ago. This was totally her idea! She has actually asked on and off for the last year. It started last year when a little friend at school got her ears pierced. She came home talking and asking about it. When I told her that she could have hers pierced too but that it is sort of like getting shots in that it hurts for a bit and then it is over. She decided, "I will wait until I am bigger.
Then a few weeks ago she started asking about it again. I reminded her that she could have it done but that it would hurt like a shot but instead of saying she wanted to wait she asked about going to have it done every day. So finally we took her after church. She held the bear they gave her but turned down the sucker. The girl who did it did a great job. Her little assistant girl told Bailey that it didn't hurt but Bailey assured her that her mom already had told her that it indeed would hurt but just for a little bit. Got some strange looks on that one!
Then both workers got their "gun" ready and then...
shot the earings in. Trev captured a pretty true description of what it feels like! She acted like she might cry but then realized the pain was over.
I put the cleaning "magic" solution on and she was good to go.
She was so proud of herself! Good job Sugie you are such a big girl!
Proud of her new earings!
