Fleshy holes

A long time ago Tug made a deal with {l} and  {r}; if {l} stopped biting her nails she could get her ears pierced and if {r} stopped sucking her thumb she could get hers pierced. {l} was successful much earlier than {r}. Today at {l}'s judo tournament {r} and Tug started talking about her deal (I wasn't at the tournament). We haven't seen her suck her thumb in a long time, but she hasn't asked to get them pierced so I thought she had lost interest. I think seeing her cousin get her ears pierced resparked {r}'s desire.  So today, once they returned from the tournament ({l} got silver, again) we went to get {r}s's hair cut and her ears pierced. She has been wanting to grow her hair out but I like it better short so I threw that last bit of a bribe in there. . .get your hair cut and you can get your ears pierced.
Unlike their cousin, our Claire's does not allow you to take pictures during piercing. They would have been boring anyway. . . she didn't even flinch ~ not one blink of pain!

13 people are laughing with me:

Yea Reg!! You look beautiful. Love the hair and the ears. :) Good job meeting your goal.

No pictures??! That's outrageous!

Congrats! that's a great accomplishment! my kids ALL bite their nails too. i usually make them give up biting for lent. then they just resume after Easter - :::sigh:::

Great. another post I can't show my daughter. I told her she has to wait until she turns 13 before she gets her ears pierced. Why 13? Because that's when I got my ears pierced.

Pretty, pretty!

I have tried to convince Madeleine Sophie to get her ears pierced... and you know hat she said? "If God wanted me to have holes there, he would have made me that way."

Seriously,where does she come from?

AWW,she looks so cute! And very happy!

Lookin' good!

Morgan was hinting at that just today. She's seven; I am sure that she'd be responsible and take care of her ears; I'm just a little too afraid to let her do it.

I got my ears pierced at 9 and haven't worn earrings since I started having kids--think that has something to do with infants and young children liking to pull shiny things out of their mother's ears....

congrats! to her. they look so darlin'.
this {r} has had her ears pierced since babyhood. as has my girl. and we both bite our nails. it's such a nasty habit! it drives my hubby nuts. but i.can't.help.it.

How cute is that?! Cute cut and earrings. I once bribed mine with something she really, really wanted- 4 new dinosaurs. She screamed bloody murder the whole day during/after and out came the earrings. Seven years later and we have nice little flshy holes. ;)

She looks so happy! Congratulations {r}!

AWWWWW! SOOOOO CUUUUUTE! She picked the colored ones!

My dad sneaked and brought me to get mine pierced for my 12th birthday. My mom said I couldn't get them done until I turned 18 like she was. I think she was secretly relieved. I let my babies get them pierced because I'm a pain coward and I knew it wouldn't hurt them as babies. I think the littler they are, the less painful it is.
