I took Madame swimming this morning at a place we’d never been before. It was great. However, I saw an inordinate number of toddlers with earrings, not just studs but loopy ones. I really don’t know what possesses people to do such things. It strikes me as being a bit barbaric and possibly against the child’s free will. Does it really matter if people mistake your little girl for a boy???
I have nothing against piercings and I have had quite a few myself, but this is something I chose to do when I was a bit older. If Madame wants to get her ears pierced when she’s a bit older (10-12 yrs), I have no issue with it; however, I can’t see myself agreeing to it any earlier. If I pierce her ears now, what’s she going to do to rebel and show her independence with when she’s a teen; Branding, Skull Studs or Tattoos???
