Well, Kaia has had her first big right of passage… Yesterday, we took a family trip to the Mall (which is a rare thing for us) to hit Claire’s boutique! And you know what that means!! Yep, Kaia got her ears pierced!! She’s been asking for a while to do it, and I kept saying ‘talk to your daddy!’. I got my first piercing when I was 3 and never had a problem with my ears and loved having earrings. So, I was fine with it. Toby, on the other hand, was not ready. This is his baby girl getting metal stuck in her ears so that she can look more like Barbie. So, I totally understand. But, yesterday, she talked him into it.
I happened to have a lidocaine cream, so I put some on her ears before we left for the mall. She was so stoic! She said it stung a little, but barely flinched and then wanted to look at more earrings. She chose her birthstone to pierce with.
