Ear piercing. DRAMA. Here's the whole story.
Ellie decided ONCE AGAIN that "Today is the day! The day I am going to get my ears pierced!" She decides this on the most random days, but being the good mama I am, I agreed we could head out to the mall (again) to see if today truly WAS the day!
We bid dad farewell, and Gabbi grabbed a Sprite, and we were ready to roll.
"I'll do it!". Ok, are you sure you wanna do this, Gabbi?! We'd not even had the whole "pre-discussion" at ALL!
By now, my phone is dead, and I cannot believe that I am going to miss this monumentous occasion! My friend, Tara, happened to walk in right about then. She said, Let me take it with my phone. Soooo... they once again loaded those guns with 4mm CZs, alcohol prepped her ears, made sure the dots were even, and Miss Priss insisted that she sit in my lap.
"Yes ma'am. You have to pay for the earrings because they are no longer sterile once we loaded them in the gun." She says, "Well, YOU can wear them." Ummm, NO! I MAKE all of my earrings, and 4mm CZs just ain't how I'm flowing! Ok, NOW, I am kinda getting HOT. And I think Ellie could tell. Here was my threat...
"We are NOT coming back to get your ears pierced, not one more time, until you are SEVEN YEARS OLD!!"
That must've done it?! She said, "I can do it now." I know those ladies must've thought we were nuts. I looked at them very empathetically and said, "Seriously, it's just up to you!". They were so kind and tried one more time. THis time, it was as simple as "One, two, three, CLICK!".
Being a girl mama can be a wee bit trying at times... but oh so rewarding too!!
