I didn't want to take care of the piercings and I wanted to let them decide what to do with their own body. Katrina could have gotten her ears pierced at any time but she chose not to until this week.
|The finished product!|
I don't know exactly why she wanted them done but she was sure excited about it. She told all her friends that she was going this weekend to have it done.
She wanted to know exactly how much it would hurt and asked me to pinch her arm as hard as it may feel.
As the time grew closer, the more nervous she got.
She was worried her brother was going to make fun of her.
She was worried that people outside the store would be watching.
She was worried that they'd get infected.
She was worried that it was going to hurt A LOT.
While sitting in the chair she started to cry when the lady started cleaning her ears.
She had worked herself up in a little bubble of anxiety.
When we asked why she was crying, she said that she was scared it was going to hurt.
and then it was over and she said, "That's it?"
and when we got home she realized that she didn't get her lollipop and was irritated.
