What's wonderful is that one of the doctors at our pediatrician's office does ear piercing. Everything is sterile, she's comfortable with the office, Dr. Harris is very particular about placement and they even gave us a prescription for numbing cream so it wouldn't hurt. The most Caroline protested was when we had to take the band-aids off that I put on so the numbing cream wouldn't get on everything on the drive to the office. She also got mad when Dr. Harris tried to put dots on her earlobes with a little marker. We had to tell her that we were checking her ears so she would let us near her with the pen. When it came time to get down to business it was no big deal. She cried for just a few seconds. Then she noticed her earrings in the mirror and said "Oooooo! So brave! I love it!" Funny girl.
She's so proud of her earrings. She's been talking about them and the experience ever since. "My earrings. Cried and cried. So brave! So beautiful!", she'll say, over and over. Too cute.
In the car. She's got her band-aids on her ears so the numbing goo won't get everywhere.Waiting in the doctor's office
Right after. She's got a lollipop in her mouth that turned her lips the most lovely shade of blue.
