Maryn's growing up!

Today Jenny and I returned to the mall to return some of the things we had bought on Saturday night. We shopped a little then let Maryn & Weston play on the little playground they have. While we were sitting there chatting I mentioned getting Maryn's ears pierced sometime, not at all thinking I would do it today. She convinced me to do it.

We persuaded them to leave the playground area. Not very happy about it we decided to not strap them into the strollers and let them walk to Libby Lu. Mackenzi & Maci love this place and always ask to take friends there to get makeovers. THey will be so jealous that their little sister had her own sort of makeover there today.




As you can see, she had no idea what was about to happen to her. She was all grins thinking "i'm getting pretty earrings!" And then..



the earrings were launched into to her sweet little ears without any warning at all. Immediately, I felt I had betrayed my little baby girl. I have asked her several times if she wanted earrings and she always would either nod her head yes or say the cutest little "lisp yes" I had ever heard. I just couldn't convince myself to traumatize her.

She actually just screamed for about a minute and then she was all better and so cute when she looked at herself in the mirror. She was so proud of her new look. As soon as the girls came home from school Maci immediately noticed them and that made her feel even more special.



Days like today remind how much I enjoy having girls and the fun Mommy Daughter things we are able to share together.

I am so glad you have the photos to show the experience! The before and after shots are just priceless. I'm glad she recovered quickly and was able to admire her new look. I have so many mother/daughter things to look forward to!

I am glad you let me talk you in to it. Who knows if it would have happened any time soon otherwise right? I think she did great and I loved her smiles after she was done. Such a big girl!

I'm with Grammy on this one. Glad I didn't witness the torture of sweet little Maryn. The before and after pictures are so sweet. I know she was surprised. I'm sure she is just darling with her beautiful earrings. I will be happy when we are there again in a couple weeks to see them. Miss you all lots...love you lots more!
