Elsie and I were putting away some things in her room this morning when out of nowhere she says, "I needs rings in my ears, Mommy. I like those. Can you get me some?" I didn't respond right away...probably just had a dumbfounded look on my face as I thought back to all of the times people would talk about piercing their baby's ears and my response to that. I've always said that I had no problem with getting Elsie's ears pierced when she asks for it. But, I had no idea that she'd ask when she was 3! I was thinking 6 or 7 or 11! Not 3! Well, I'm just not ready! And, I'm praying that she forgets her request! Truthfully, I think if I took her to have it done, she'd get scared and back out of it...we'll wait and see how often she asks about it or if she brings it up again at all.
