Don't tell Dustin!!!

Do you see a difference??
Well after 2 hours, a lot of bribing, $65 in Claire's accessories, and a lot of frustration, we finally got Kyla's ears pierced! and I learned one thing... make sure two people do it at the same time! I called earlier today and she told me they could do it today and I heard her talking to another girl at the store so I "assumed" there was going to be 2 people. Well I got there and only one of them does the piercings and the manager is out of town for over a week. I hauled all 3 kids down there so I was not leaving without them done! We got one done, she was so excited about it and really good until it happened. Then she cried and was not letting the other one get done. I knew it. Then I tried bribing her with stuff and she had it all picked out and finally after an hour and a half of convincing, I held her on my lap and she gave me a hug and the girl did it super fast. Poor girls hands were shaking the entire time cuz I think she was so nervous! Good test for her! She did great though and Kyla loves them! They are pink of course, what else.

Pink flowers, they look so cute on her.

Her loot. Dora purse (which she calls her diaper bag) and Dora sunglasses. Oh and 5 suckers from the Claires lady. I think she was even getting desperate.

I don't think Dustin will really care, but I wanted to surprise him and give him no choice! It'll be a welcome home gift for him. He'll love it. I'm so smart.

Yay Mindy, I love it! I got my girls ears done almost 2 years ago and have never regretted it. I bet Kyla has been checking herself out in the mirror all day. Clairs even has some dangly earrings for little girls--too cute!

Mindy I noticed the difference right away...before I even read that you pierced her ears! Ha! It looks so adorable!!!! I'm sure Dustin will love it! I got Cadrien's ears pierced at 6 months and we went to Merle Norman and they were pros!!!! Sorry to hear you had so much trouble at Claire's. But, it was all worth it now wasn't it!!!

They look cute. I think every girl needs them. Kodi got hers at 2 months. And she loves them now

Lynn said...

Ha! I knew you would do it. : D

She looks SO happy with them. Love it. I had to laugh though....my experience with the 3rd daughter was very close to the same thing. SOoooo glad when the last one was done.

Smart girl you are.

cute! she probably loves them and feels like a little princess. Mady is always looking at mine and saying "me earrings??" She's 2 on saturday....I don't know, maybe we will have to take a trip to the mall too, I'd probably have to convince James though.

Mindi said...

Aw, so fun! I had to get mine done twice, so don't take them out! That's so cute though!!

Lindsay said...

Haha, I love that you did it while Dustin was gone. They look great!
