So Alyssa and I have finally convinced her Dad to allow her to get her ears pierced. I wanted to do it when she was a little baby but under no circumstances did he allow it. Most jewelry stores only do it for kids 3 years and older anyway, however there are stores that do it at any age. My take was that the earlier it’s done, the sooner it’s forgotten.
I can actually remember the day that my Mom took me to get mine pierced. I was about 5 or 6 years old and I remember her telling me that it would just feel like a little pin prick. I remember it being a lot worse than that, so I must admit I was a bit scared about taking Alyssa.
