Obvs, this may or may not apply to you, depending on your ears, but if yours are pierced, how old were you when it happened?
Mine were pierced the day I was born. Yup, at the actual hospital, because it’s a cultural thing for a lot of Filipinos, and I was born out there. I joke with my mom about it all the time and say that she mainly wanted a baby girl so she could put jewelry on a her, a.k.a. me. 🙂 And my mom LOVES jewelry. I think she’s a little disappointed that I’m not as crazy about it as she is.
So, yeah, I was less than 24 hours old.
Connor Claire doesn’t have hers pierced yet, though. El Hub and I had to compromise on that. He would rather wait until she has more an opinion on it herself, just in case she wants to be a tomboy (hey, I had my ears pierced, and I was still a tomboy, but I get it), and I’m fine with that for now… But I’ll probably take her to get hers pierced one of these days in the next two years. I dunno… We’ll play it by ear (haha). 🙂
Speaking of this, where does one get baby ears pierced anyway? I mean, I think I could take her to someplace at the mall, like Claire’s, but I gotta admit I’m a little nervous about letting a 15-year-old near Connor’s head with something sharp.
I guess I’m a worrywart that way!
So how old were you when you got your ears pierced?
