Anna, my darling daughter who has a severe hatred and paranoia of needles, got her ears pierced over the weekend. She wanted it that badly! We told her that she could have her ears pierced for her 8th birthday, which is coming up in a couple weeks. She is so very happy and proud of herself for going through it without shedding a tear. She was a trooper! We're proud of you too! Doesn't she look pretty... and so grown up?!?
