A landmark event in a little girl's life

We were at the mall on Friday doing our holiday photos, and we decided to ask Delaney if she wanted to get her ears pierced. She enthusiastically answered, "Yes!" and we walked to Claire's Boutique. She sat right in the chair and started to ask the girl a bunch of questions. She chose the studs for December, a nice teal blue. The girl asked her if Delaney wanted her to count to 3 or to just do it. Delaney replied, "Just do it." She recoiled a little and said, "That hurt." We told her that she still had one to go. The girl asked Delaney if she wanted to count to three or if she wanted to just do it. Again, Delaney bravely said, "Just do it." She shed 2 maybe 3 tears and then was showing those sparkly earrings off. "I got my ears paired."

What a Big Girl thing to do! I bet there will be some pretty studs coming her way in, oh, about a month. ;-)
