K.C., Lilly, & I were at the Limerick outlets today, and during lunch (3-year old) Lilly told us she wanted to get her ears pierced. Up until now even when offered, she's always declined saying "no, when I get bigger" in response. Well, after lunch led by an excited Lilly we headed over to Claire's and did the deed.
Lilly was amazing, even with a minor malfunction with the staple...er, I mean earring gun. As a father who's never been pierced, or even witnessed anybody get pierced, I'll admit I was a little nervous for her. But no screaming, not a tear, nothing. She handled it like a big girl, exactly what she is.
