Caylee's Ears

Caylee made a big decision this past week. She decided she was ready to get her ears pierced. We told her that it would hurt and she would have to take good care of them. Caylee had been thinking about taking on this new commitment for some time now. But she finally decided that it needed to happen "before she started Kindergarten and before she turned six." On the big day, she wasn't scared or nervous one bit. She had both ears pierced at the same time and she didn't even flinch. She was even able to maintain a smile. But as I was paying at the counter, she came over to me and said as she laughed, "Mom, that hurt so bad." We started laughing and I asked her if it was worth it. She said, "I'm glad I did it." Thank goodness she didn't have any regrets. She picked out very cute little pink flower earrings.

I'm glad to see the updates. Caylee is so sweet. Hope she enjoys clogging, it sounds fun. Shae Lee started kindergarten too, because the cut-off is way later here (october). Sorry to hear about your sister's cancer. What a shock!
