Afterwards we went to lunch at the Amish market and then home for a refresher (she hates to call them naps). Funny, even though she hates naps, she slept for almost 3 hours. Go Figure.
Once we were awake from our refresher it was off to the local mall to get our ears pierced. We were going to wait to have her ears pierced, however, since she did so well with her last blood draw, we thought she would handle it well. We have been talking about it to Lotus and she kept saying she wanted earrings. We explained it would be a pinch and a loud noise. She insisted she wanted earrings like Mommy. She talked about it alot so we decided to go ahead. When we got there someone else was getting their ears pierced so we went and looked at all the Princess stuff to reward her with afterwards. Lotus picked out a few goodies and soon it was her turn. She jumped up int he chair and was hugging the black bear. We asked her if she wanted to sit on mommy's lap and she fully agreed. She received the dots on her ears to make sure they were even. Lotus was very patience and was not fussy at all. Then came the piercing guns, both at the same time, you could tell she started to get a bit worried. And then BAM and then HIGH PITCHED SCREAM. She was not happy at all. (And I felt horrible.....not to mention so many people stopped to watch, what's the deal with that?). We quickly went to the back to pick up our goodies from earlier and "change the subject" so to speak. Within 10 minutes, Lotus was back to normal and all was good in the world once again. You could tell she was proud of her new flower earrings, because every time we passed a mirror she had to look and model. The cleaning and turning of the earrings will be tough the first few days, I feel it will be a challenge but with everything she will get use to it and it will become routine.
So what's with the title of the post? On the way to the mall I called her a DIVA since she having her nails paints, hair cut, and now earrings. She quickly corrected me," I'm not a DIVA! I am a PRINCESS MOMMY!" I guess she told me. My baby is growing up so quickly, I cannot believe she will be 3 years old in the next few months. WOW!
Lotus, Mommy and Daddy are so proud of you, today you were such a BIG GIRL!
