Hailey has been asking to have her ears pierced for almost as long as she could talk. I remember the first time she brought it up like it was yesterday. We were in the car on the way home from daycare, and she still had a little girl lisp. It’s been a long time since those days.

I don’t know why we said that she could get her ears pierced at 8 years-old. And by “we” I mean “me” because Luke would have let her do it at 4. Anyway, she is eight. So, we did it. She was very brave and didn’t cry until it was over when she gave out only a little whimper.

Sophia, on the other hand, is not 8. Nope. So, why did she get her ears pierced? Because life isn’t fair. Actually not really. She did try the “it’s not fair argument,” but that really doesn’t fly with me. What it came down to is a selfish selfish selfishness on my part. It’s easier to just take care of both girls at once rather than do one now and one in three years. Yup. That’s the reason.

I did ask Hailey if it was ok though. I didn’t want her to be upset that she had to wait and Sophia didn’t, but she is THE best sister in the world so she didn’t hesitate to give her blessing.

And so we have this. Actually, Sophia went first, and she was also very brave. I will never forget the look on their faces in between ears because we told them that they couldn’t cry until both ears were done. Both of them looked like they were going to bust out into full on wail, but they held it in and then only whimpered when it was done. They are so great!
