BIG Princess News...

My Princess is FINALLY potty trained! 100%! She has had NO accidents during the day or night in over a week. And what did she get for that? Besides the prize every day, of course...

She got her EARS PIERCED!

We told her last week that if she went a whole week with no accidents, she could get them pierced. Well, she must have really wanted holes in her ears because she DID IT!

Here is our ear piercing experience in photos, and then a little about how things got complicated...

She has NO idea what is coming...

Putting dots where the studs will go...

Getting a little nervous, but still not really sure what is happening...

Get ready, get set...





...GO!!!

She calmed down once we showed her the earrings in the mirror. Still not happy though.

Beautiful little pierced ears...

And then the drama came in. No more than 2 hours after she got home, she snagged one on a couch pillow and pulled it out. Daddy couldn't get it back in. So, I took her back up to the mall and had them do it again. :-(

She KNEW what was coming the second time and it was NOT fun.

I had to tell her she HAD to let them do it, or we had to take the other one out. She sat still and let the girl put it in. And she now has 2 beautiful flowers again. And I have a similar pair so we can match.


And to ruin my "fun" I woke up in the middle of the night wondering how her ITP and ear piercing would go. Hoped and prayed her platelets were still up around 64,000 where they were on Tuesday. I seriously should NOT have to worry about something like another stupid autoimmune disease when all I wanted to do was have girl time celebrating a HUGE accomplishment. Oh well. Not much bleeding and the ears are done.

Yikes... that sounds like an ordeal, but hopefully when it's healed, she'll think it was worth it! And congrats to the Princess on no accidents! Big girl panties all the way! ;)

Way to go!! Potty training is a BIG deal!!
I think every girl is like that...they want their ears pierced but don't really get that it painful to pierce something! (Even those who live with being poked by needles often!)
