Layla has been asking us for several months if she could get her ears pierced.
She will be 5 on Sunday.
I was worried that I'd be the one taking care of these cute little pieced ears.
So I showed her how to clean mine. I made her spin them around and clean them with cleaner.
She did it and did great. Then I sat her down and told her honestly...it would hurt.
I told her she couldn't change the earrings for 6 weeks and blah blah blah...she still wanted to do it.
We decided that now would be the best time.
I want them to be healed before school starts in the fall.
On Tuesday off to Claires we went!
My sweet girl getting ready!
Ashley is cleaning her ears and getting her marked up.
She was the sweetest ear piercer ever.
Do they have names for that?
Oh me, oh my!
Look at that tear forming...my heart was breaking at this point.
BUT I had to be strong for Layla.
That face is just so stinkin' sad.
She is holding
squeezing the stuffing out of the Claire's bear.
She later said that that bear and my hand got her through without crying!
Yes, you heard me correctly...she didn't cry a bit.
I'm so proud of her, but even if she cried I'd be proud.
And of course a lolli-pop makes everything better :)
She picked out the cutest little multi-colored daisy earrings.
They have so many more options than they did when I was little.
Here she is picking out earrings for when her ears heal.
She was soooo excited. I was excited too.
I did it mommy!!!!
Can I get some candy?
How could I say no to such a big girl?!?
Then we bought a new backpack and lunch box combo for Kindergarten.
The Gap had the cutest sets. And bonus...they were 30% off.
The lunch box clips onto the backpack.
LK picked out a fun purple backpack and the lunch box is all glitter...so cute!
In the above picture Layla is posing with her new backpack and a headless mannequin?
Not sure why, but Mmmm k.
Here is one more look of that sad little face.
My priss pot is getting so BIG!
She is doing great with the cleaning of her ears. It is Thursday morning and she hasn't skipped a cleaning yet. She cleans them and then comes to show me that she is turning them in her ears.
She is loving her new sassy look!
