Olivia was turning 12. I planned to let her choose if she wanted to get her ears pierced (she had actually NEVER asked for this before). Then Wyatt gave me earings for our anniversary, so I decided when I got home that we would go a little early of her 12th birthday, and make a day of it.
So, after school one day we drove down to the mall and got our ears pierced. I think Olivia was excited to be seen as more grown up!
