It was difficult child's birthday today. We kept it low key but it was a nice day. Most of the day he was even pleasant. I can't believe that I actually let him get his ear pierced! I had always told him he had to wait til he was 18. He really wanted it and I finally decided why not? He is so thrilled about it and couldn't believe I let him get it pierced. I just hope he takes care of it so it doesn't get infected. I had to laugh at my mom's reaction. It took us forever as kids to convince her to let my sister and me pierce our ears. I figured she would flip but when I told her she thought it was great! Go figure!
