Brianna is starting to get interested in accessories. It’s no fault of her own. I am the one to blame. I am a purse and jewelry fanatic. I guess it’s rubbing off. She asked me about 3 days ago if she could wear my earrings. The blue ones. I told her not until she gets her ears pierced. I opened a can of worms with that statement.
Today she is going with me to the mall to get her ears pierced. I told her she can pick out whatever piercing studs she wants. She is all of a sudden 13. She has made a decision. I told her it will hurt. I told her she might cry. She doesn’t care. She wants earrings.
The girl is just like me. Determined to get what she wants even if it hurts. Wow!
So instead of painting her room today, we’ll be doing more grown up things. She’s excited and I am a little nervous. I told her I’d hold her hand and that it’s ok to cry. She hugs me and tells me how happy she is that she gets to do this today.
Just me and her. A girlie moment. A big girl step.
They grow up too fast.
