As an early birthday present to Emma, we took her to Claire’s at the mall to have her ears pierced. She has been asking about the possibility of having it done for months now, and we decided that it would make a good birthday present from Mom & Dad. With her birthday falling so close to Memorial Day (the traditional opening of ‘Pool Season’), we decided that we would have the piercing done early so that her ears will have weeks of healing & ‘setting’ before she jumps into a public swimming pool.
Emma’s birth stone is the emerald, so her ears are now sporting a teeny “crystal emerald” – your guess is as good as mine!
Another milestone & rite of passage for Emma Mankin.
