She did it!

She did it!

I'm so proud my girl.

I think I was more nervous than Elise. When she got home from school, her first question was if we were still going to the mall. She skipped through the mall, very excited about going to Libby Lu. The staff at Libby Lu did a terrific job. I was very worried we'd have some high school kid piercing her ears (which wouldn't have gone over well with me in my nervous state).

Here she is in the chair holding the new Webkinz I let her pick out to hold during the process. Even at this point, she was still VERY excited. (This is where I asked for a chair so I wouldn't pass out.) She handled it just fine until the actual piercing. They do both ears at one time and count to 5, but do the actual piercing on count 2. I made sure to put the camera down so I could grab her if she started crying, which she did. But, the tears didn't last too long until she was off to look at their selection of earrings to wear once they heal.

Here's the new dragon and her certificate from Libby Lu. Carson came along and held my hand while she got her ears pierced. :)

It's hard to see here, but she went with pink "diamond" hearts. She debated between pink flowers, round pink diamonds or the hearts but the hearts won out.

And here is a bed-headed Elise this morning, still pretty excited about her new bling.

Oh, and for the record, her loose tooth is now hanging by a thread. I think we'll have the first visit from the tooth fairy very soon.

What a brave girl (and Mommy)! Love the earrings, and I think pink hearts are COOL!
And bravo to Carson for coming to Mom's rescue and holding her hand!

What a brave and beautiful young lady you are, Elise!
(I got my ears pierced at 13 and let them seal back up-too chicken- had to wait another year to try again)
