The Great Earring Piercing Debate

The diva loves jewelry. Specifically, she love MY jewelry. I'm not a huge collector but the diva loves my earrings. And my rings. And my bracelets. And, ok, some of the necklaces.
When she was born she had friends who had their ears pierced as infants. I was too chicken, on her behalf. I wanted HER to make that decision. Now I wonder if I let the diva go with her decision to have her ears pierced and she blames ME for the pain, can we both get over it? Could I live with the guilt? Would she hate me beyond the teen years?
I want her to be happy. I have guilt pretty much every single day about her being an only child but things were just not in our favor to give her a sibling. I want her to have fun things to do and to be happy. I worry daily that I am a substandard mother. Yes. Every. Single. Day. I have an overabundance of Mommy Guilt. If we'd stayed in our old house I could have been a SAHM (Stay At Home Mom) but I also wonder if I could be a decent SAHM but I love our house and I am not scared of our current neighbors. LOL-sorta... 
OK-so this has strayed from the whole Ear Piercing Debate. Her birthday is in October. Let's see what she decides them, m'kay?
I'll let you know! :)

  1. I got the great gift of ear piercing when I turned 7. I chickened out at least 3 times, and got them done by 2 people at the same time when I turned 8. :p That to say I think it is important for them to make those decisions themselves. And hell yeah it hurts (won't talk about my third set of holes), but it goes away and then she can really start coveting your stuff. :)
