This morning, I read this post on My Brown Baby (I love that blog!) about little girls of color getting their ears pierced at very young ages.
When Elizabeth came to me at 4 months old, she already had pierced ears (I assume her foster mom had had it done). So cute! They lasted until she was 2 years old and one of her earrings came out in her crib and got lost. At that point I took the other one out and let the holes close up. I decided she could get them repierced when she was older, when/if she wanted to. I wasn't going to make her wait until a certain age, but I also wasn't going to traumatize my toddler by having it done then. Well, now at age 5, she has been starting to ask to get her ears pierced, so I guess the time is coming soon...I'm actually feeling kind of excited that she wants it done!
