Kids Amaze Me

For the last little while my daughter has been asking to get her ears pierced. I was not one of those moms who could take her baby to get this done even though I thought it looked cute. I couldn't hurt her for ascetic reasons - I am not judging those of you who did though - I just couldn't myself. So, when she started asking I explained that it does hurt when they do it but -not for long. She is only 4 - so I really wanted her to understand. She just kept nodding and saying that she wanted it done. She begged me all the time.

So yesterday - my Mother and I ventured to the mall and took her to the place where they pierce ears. She scrambled up into the chair with a very determined look upon her face and prepared herself. The ladies scooched up beside her while she stared me straight in the face and *POW* - her eyes got wide and she looked a little shocked and then I said, "That's it - you did it! The worst is over-what a brave girl!" (and then I turned around so she wouldn't see MY tears and looked at my mother who was also crying - lol). It reminded me of the first shots my son ever had - I was crying so hard they had to let me sit and regain my composure - Roo was only upset for about 15 seconds and then rapidly returned to the happy cooing baby he was before I subjected him to such necessary torture, I however continued to wail for about 10 minutes - incoherently babbling something about being a terrible mother and asking how would my baby ever trust me again. (I also wept slightly when the supermarket was out of Cornish game hens recently - but that's another story.)

It looks cute. But I don't think I will ever get over the guilt of it all. Well - maybe... if she ever comes home with her nose or belly done... maybe then. Since the guilt will be overridden by shock and horror... even though I had mine done (nose only for about six months - it didn't work for me). Hypocrite? Absolutely. I have already told her she has to wait until she's 30 to get any more piercings... or go on a date. LOL.

Sounds like she's ready for a tattoo.

You were so right to make your daughter aware of what was going to happen before she got her ears pierced. It would be much worse for her to lose her trust in you when she is so young, than for her to deal with a temporary bit of pain. Anyway, I was just returning the blog visit and it looks like a nice place here so I'm sure I'll be back. I've finally met someone who may be more Meez-crazy than I am. You have three? LOL. Nice to meet ya and thanks for the visit and comment!

My 6 yr old begged and begged me. So we caved in and said it could be a 6th Birthday treat. On the way she was full of it. All 'I can handle the pain' 'I'm not a baby'. When she sat in the chair she went very quiet. Then when she looked at the two huge staple gun things her eyes widened with terror and she went a little pale. Being stubborn I knew she was finding it hard to admit she'd changed her mind. I said 'would you rather choose some pretty hairbands and go get a chocolate chip muffin?' She was out that chair faster than you could blink and already choosing hair accessories. Bless her! Still my baby girl after all.

And the jabs - don't you just want to punch the nurse who gives the injections? Unfair as just doing their job - but still....
