So about those earrings!
I meant to post about how Brooklyn is wearing earrings again but just haven’t gotten around to it. Someone asked in the comments a while ago.
When we took her earrings out last month because her ears were infected she was thrilled.
Thrilled until that night, a half hour after bedtime or so, when she started crying and screaming for me from her bed.
I went in and she was insistent that we put her earrings back in and right now.
Well, first of all I don’t do anything right now when it’s after bedtime (haha) and second of all putting them back in would be a bit of a process (with me having to calm her down enough to actually put the earrings in) so I said we’ll put them in when you wake up.
She freaked about that (she has no patience and certainly doesn’t like being told that whatever it was she was expecting to happen isn’t going to happen) but eventually went to sleep.
The next morning I asked her if she was sure she wanted her earrings back in because I really didn’t want to stand there and attempt to put the earrings in with her leaning away, turning away, jumping away and screaming the whole time. Which is what we went through every single stinking day when it was time to clean her ears the first two months after getting them pierced!
She actually stayed calm and let me put the earrings back in! I had sterilized the earrings first and I had cleaned out her ears with that solution from Claire’s.
I hoped her ears wouldn’t get infected again.
Turns out, they didn’t! They healed right up really fast and have been totally fine ever since! Crazy, huh?
If I went back in time I’d not pierce her ears again. I’d wait until she was older and could take care of them herself.
But as of now, the earrings thing isn’t so bad. Thankfully.
And they are really cute 🙂
