I was so afraid to pierce Genevieve’s ears. I feared she would cry uncontrollably and be miserable for days, especially because she’s teething. But after my friend got her infant daughter’s ears pierced, I decided to go for it.
Genevieve was all smiles and chatter at the pharmacy- until three people had to hold her down. As soon as her ears were pierced, she let out three sharp “what the heck just happened to me?!!” shrieks, then buried her face in her hands. By the time we got to the register to pay, she was over it and more focused on grabbing candy bars from the counter.
Then, she had a bottle and went swimming for the first time.
