Before the hair cutting incident over Labor Day weekend. Leah had another change in appearance that I have been meaning to blog about for a while. She got her ears "pinched". Some of you may recall that she had requested to do this a few months ago but upon seeing the woman putting on the latex gloves, she quickly aborted her mission. I guess it was a little to0 reminiscent of shots at the doctor's office. But, last week as we pulled into Wal-mart to get some groceries, Leah said again, "can we get my ears pinched today?" I asked her if she remembered last time when she bailed last minute. She said that she really wanted to do it this time so we gave it another try. And, by Pete, she put on her brave face and sat right up there and let them pierce her ears. She was tough as nails until the moment the earrings went through and then she let out a scream that all of Wal-mart heard I am sure. She cried for a minute and then giggled through tears as she looked in the little hand held mirror at her beautiful ears adorned with red hearts. She has almost inspired her older sister to do the same thing..... well, almost.
