On a related note, I came to a new understanding of why it is called "ear piercing" - my goodness but our girl can scream! But I do not believe that there was any lasting trauma; right after it was all over Sasha was proudly strutting about the mall, exposing her ears to anybody who was likely to admire. And, to their credit, Sam and Ben have repeatedly feigned surprise and awestruck wonder at the sheer brilliance of the pierced ears. They are truly good brothers.
|Grammy was very, very brave.|
|Sasha starts to have second thoughts about whether or not this is really the great idea it seemed when we picked out the lovely, sparkly earrings.|
|But mere moments (and two lollipops and an ice cream) later, Sasha and Grammy proudly show off their new jewelry. Both princesses look very lovely with their extra sparkle and all is right with the world.|
Sasha did mention, however, that she doesn't want her WanYing to get her ears pierced because she doesn't want her to cry. Now that's a quality big sister for ya.
