When this little girl was a little baby, I wanted in the worst way to get her ears pierced. You know, maybe slow down the "Oh-what a cute little guy" remarks that followed, especially considering she was bald until about... last year! :-)
But NO. Matt has a soft spot for unadulterated ears and said Not on your life. He also said that when she was old enough to express interest, THEN, He would allow it. That way, we didn't put a permenant hole in her ears if she wasn't going to want it later on.
So, me being the wonderfully submissive wife that I am, obliged both with a smile on my face and in my heart. (ha!)
Now she is five and wants earrings in the worst way. Matt is now backing up the train because he still can't get past protecting those earlobes from being tainted.
Corynn is fighting back though, by wearing the gaudy dress up earrings everywhere she possibly can.
Now, as much as I love her sweet little empty earlobes and would *probably* at this point prefer if she kept them pure and unblemished, I would MUCH rather see a nice tiny pair of diamond studs or gold balls than to be greeted with flashing silver dangles at every turn.
ANYTHING is better than THAT, right?!?
