Notice anything different?

Yep, apparently six-and-a-half is the age for earrings in our house. We were walking to a mall restaurant for dinner when the girls spotted Claire’s and reminded me to get “bun donuts” for ballet (thanks to blog suggestions), so we dashed in. And for some inexplicable reason they decided this was the night they were ready to get their ears pierced. Okey dokey then. I texted TubaDad, who was already at the restaurant, “Put our name in and come to Claire’s, getting ears pierced!” He recognized the momentousness of the occasion and was there in a flash. Heh.

So dinner was delayed a tiny bit while the girls carefully selected their earrings (shiny little CZ studs), made sure the holes were going to be in the exact right spots, and held hands for courage. Ro volunteered to go first, then gritted her teeth and got it done (no tears). I thought Ree would change her mind after seeing sister in the hot seat, but she also hopped right up there (clenched Ro’s hand) and got it done (also no tears).

  2. Awww, too cute! Once they are able to take them out, Tuba Dad needs to treat them to some really fancy diamond or birthstone earrings. :) Let them pick them out at the jewelry store after dance class. :)

    Oh my, so grown up. I was 21 when I got mine pierced. I then wore earrings everyday and pretty much stopped decades later. This may "re-inspire" me. They look so cute with their earrings.

  10. Just adorable!! At least they are six. Jadalyn decided right before her third birthday...because she just had to have some fuzzy cow earrings. No tears for her, but her Mommy had a few. LOL

  11. Cuties! we had our girls ears done when they were about 2....not the best age in retrospect...better when they are babies and have no clue, or wait until they are older! They cried, but got over it pretty quick with a lollipop!

  12. They look great!! It really makes them look so much older!

    I actually stopped wearing earrings when we came home with Emily. She kept grabbing at them and I was really afraid that she would tear my ear. Now, 4 years later, my ears are all closed up. So now at 37 I'll have to bring MYSELF to Claires to get my ears pierced! LOL!! I told Em she could get hers done when she was 7 so I might just wait until then. No point now, with another grabby kid in the house crawling all over me!

    Adorable!!! Once they can take the starter studs out I highly recommend the Crystal Palette Earrings from Lia Sophia.

    My daughter has a few pairs of them and they do not come out. She sleeps in them, wrestles with her brother, wears them to gymnastics, etc. and I have never had a problem with them even loosening. I have had problems with my daughter losing other earrings very easily. They are just the right size for the girls, maybe slightly larger than the starter studs.
