This happened. Annelise "finally" got her ears pierced on Saturday. "Finally" b/c she had been waiting for two years, since 1st grade. When she initially asked, I told her exactly what it entailed: "They use the earring like a bullet, load it in a special ear-piercing gun, and then shoot it through your ear. It's like getting a giant shot in both of your ears, and it hurts. Not for long, but it does hurt. I got mine done when I was in 3rd grade, so maybe we should think about it then." She did not forget that last part. Who knew 3rd grade would come so fast?!?! *gulp*
JB made the *BEST* video documentary EVER!!! You can't miss clicking this:
It was crazy, b/c I so vividly remember getting mine done - the nerves, the adrenaline, the happy-but-shaky feeling afterwards. All of it. They even used the same purple marker to make the target dot on her earlobe!
Clean, dot, shoot, done:
She's extremely responsible about cleaning them three times a day, and she's counting down until February, when she can wear different styles. #watchoutClaires
