Ok, it’s not that important, but sort of….
Yesterday afternoon, my sister and I were talking and she was saying how her husband does not want them to pierce their (hypothetical) baby’s ears. Her husband thinks it should be the child’s choice when it’s older.
Well, my sister does not like this response because all the little girl babies in our family have their ears pierced. My sister and I both had our ears pierced at just days old. So she says to me, “What does Matt think?”
I laughed and said, “What do you mean ‘what does Matt think’? I never even thought of asking him. I’ve always just imagined my little girl with earrings, right?”
She agrees with me, but it gets me thinking….
So I do what any other pregnant woman on a mission does, and I go to Matt’s office to confirm our baby will have pierced ears (remember, I’m not working and I’ve already cleaned our house about 25 times and done all the laundry, so driving to Matt’s office to ask him a question didn’t seem strange to me).
Let me keep this short and simple and say the conversation went something like this:
Matt: “Well, I don’t know if I want to pierce her ears so young. Maybe we should wait until she’s a little older.”
Me: (shrieking) “What do you mean????? My baby will wear earrings!!!!”
Matt: (scared) “Well, if it’s that important to you then I say we go ahead and do that.”
And after all was said and done, Matt suggested I poll my blog readers and see what they think. For the record, I will at least wait until the baby is 2 months old and had it’s first set of vaccines.
Ok, so what do you think?
