The Before. A bit nervous, refusing to make eye contact with the camera, not really holding the bear, but tolerating him on her lap because the ear piercing lady said she should.

A few weeks ago Sariah told me she wanted to get her ears pierced. I said "okay" and then let the issue die. Well recently she's been pretty persistent in her requests, so last Thursday we went for it. I had wanted to take her alone so it could be a special mommy/daughter outing, but she didn't want to wait for a night when Ben could be home to stay with the other kids, so we went with Liam and Seth in tow. I told Sariah that the piercing would hurt, so she would be prepared, and if you can believe it, she didn't shed one single tear! I was pretty amazed that the same girl who dramatically carried on over having her blood drawn, didn't even flinch for ear piercings. Luckily they could pierce both ears at the same time. I guess the "bling" factor is quite a motivator!
