Emma has been asking to get her ears pierced for a while....and since she's a little older now & can be trusted a little more, I thought it was a pretty good time. I found a place in the Square next to her dance studio & Scoops that does it.
I made plans one Friday after school to run over there & let her get them done as a surprise!
After! She did great & didn't cry a drop! I can't believe how brave this big girl is, seriously!
To celebrate, we went & got ice cream at Scoops, of course! :)
Little man was there too....he enjoyed the ice cream!
Quick note - this actually occurred the day of the horrible school shooting in Connecticut. I had planned to get her ears pierced that day a few days before. My heart was so heavy that day, I strongly considered putting it off but I'm glad I didn't. We needed a good memory from that day...a day just being a kid & celebrating the ordinary. We need to remember to focus on the little things & little moments with our kids. None of us are promised tomorrow. I sure am crazy about these two.
