The ears have been pierced
Well, the house did not get cleaned, but the ears did get pierced. We let her choose the earrings, she picked gold with her birthstone. It was a good choice. She looks absolutely adorable, but so grown up *sob*! I was worried about doing the thrice-a-day cleaning with solution (you should see what I have to go through to brush her hair or wash her face, it is not pretty) but so far she has submitted her earlobes with barely a peep. She would NOT let me take a picture of one of her ears. "You are going to put it on the INNERNET. No. Way." rofl. Let's just hope she maintains this attitude into her teen years - we'll never have to worry about her posting pics of her half-naked (or all naked) self for the world to see. I have noticed, that when it comes to things like this - GIRLIE things - getting ears pierced or buying tights or selecting barrettes, that DH not only stands there like a lump but looks scared to death. He wants to be there. He wants to be part of "it". But a deer-in-the-headlights looks more relaxed than he does. What does he think is going to happen? It's not like we are going to force him to pierce something (we weren't in THAT kind of shop) or model little pink clothes. I admit though, it is nice that he was there. Because DD is going to remember that her daddy held her hand while they pierced the second ear (let's just say that she did not cry or anything but it must have hurt more than she expected). And bought her a princess doll afterwards, even though he is the king of the "you have enough toys already and if you cleaned your toy room you would see that" rant. Since I could not take a picture of her ears, I will show you a picture of her feet (in a pair of socks that I knitted for her). Who can resist stripey socks???? See 'ya tomorrow!
