Thank you all so much for taking the time to leave such fabulously informative comments - everything you've all said so far is really useful and interesting to know - exactly what I was after! Any more stories, keep em coming :)
You know how some weeks you flitter flutter here and there, accomplishing tasks, feeling full of energy - bubbling with news - well this week isn't one of them - and neither was last week for that matter. I am literally chained to my sewing machine, I have had to put myself on a self imposed computer ban to get all my sewing done and I guess and that hard work just makes me uninteresting. Not to worry though - lots of people are getting lots of awesome outfits - just my blogging is a little below par!
Anyhow seeing that I can't think of anything interesting to write about I thought I might pose a question - ear piercing...
Hettie is now 5 and I kinda want to get her ears' pierced but am waiting till she really really wants to herself. But I do like to be prepared for these momentous occasions in life and would like some opinions, advice, stories to share?
1. I am somewhat partial to pierced ears, having 8 in my ears alone. However, Hettie's little ears look so perfect to me and I am terrified that the piercings might be crooked and then where would I be - I have become a bit obsessed with this and can often be found scanning little girls' ears to seee if I can find any evidence about crookedness. So any advice, stories,horror or otherwise there?
2. I have heard that sometimes that the ear can grow over the earing - anyone heard of this?
3. Those that have little girls with pierced ears did you go the double gun? One at a time?
4. Did any of you get your girl's ears pierced and then wished you'd waited?
Anyway I'd love to hear from you - just leave me a little comment with your story, advice, opinion etc etc.....
