Join me over at the Right Start blog as I try and figure out whether or not I should pierce my baby girl’s ears.
We’ve been a family of boys for a long time but from the time I was pregnant with my oldest son, my husband and I always talked about how cute little girls look with pierced ears.
It was a frequent topic of conversation . . . hypothetical of course since our boys weren’t likely to want their ears pierced anytime soon so we loosely decided that if we ever had a girl we would pierce her ears.
I had settled into the role of a mother of boys pretty firmly when my daughter was born. When she was only days old, my husband asked, “So, when do we get to pierce her ears?”
And I couldn’t do it.
