Kamryn has wanted to get her ears pierced for a long time. When she first asked her dad he said NO. That's been over a year I think. A few months ago she asked me about it again and I told her she had to convince her dad. She told him she wanted to get her ears pierced for her birthday. He told her he doesn't want her to do it but if she was going to do it she had to earn the money to do it. So she's been working very hard to earn the money. She's done lots of extra jobs at our house and her grandma's house. She saved up $50. She had the money and wanted to do it on her birthday but we had to wait until the day after. She took her new purse full of all of her money and we went to the mall. She was very brave and didn't even flinch. She almost cried watching the little toddler get her ears pierced right before her.
Now she is doing a great job of cleaning her ears 3 times a day. She even made herself a little note for each day and checks off when she's cleaned them. She has to keep these earrings in for 2 months and then she can finally start wearing the cute earrings she got for her birthday.
