When my niece, Meghan had her ears pierced, Allana wanted her ears pierced too. My mom had been begging to pierce the girls’ ears since they were babies, but I wanted it to happen when the girls asked for it.
Well, now Allana was asking for it. Boy, was she ever!
Auntie Kirsten told Allana that she would pierce her ears for her 10th birthday. Last Friday, Kirsten stuck to her promise and Allana feared for the state of her ears.
Allana chose hot pink peace signs for her first pair of earrings. Meghan and Emmalynn held her hand while Allana nervously waited for the piercing to happen.
A few dots to mark the spots and then…
With a Claire’s sales associate on either side of Allana, both ears were done at the same time. It was over in seconds and Allana said it didn’t hurt.
Now she is obsessing over dreaming about all the different earrings she can wear as soon as her ears heal.
