We purposely did not get Lexi’s ears pierced she was younger. We wanted her to be old enough to ask to have them done. Well a few weeks ago, she came home and was talking about her new friend Makayla. Makayla had “sparkly” earrings and she wanted some. She told me that she was going to ask her Daddy to take her to get some “sparkly” earrings. Need I say more? Just the fact that she wanted her Daddy to take her was all it took. So on August 28 after church she asked again and off to the mall we went. Lexi marched up to the store, took a seat and very bravely got her ears pierced. She’s such a drama queen I expected her to cut up at least a little but oh, no! This girl has already got the “it hurts to be a girl” down pat!
