So what do you do when your almost straight A, never breaks curfew, always does her chores and then some ask for a belly button ring? Well I will tell you what I did I said alright (it was a moment of weakness and she made me promise) Now I have to admit I tried every way out of it I could.
I put it off for 5 months.
Told her as many horror stories as I could come up.
Showed her pictures of things going wrong
AND when none of that worked I finally gave in!
So off to the electric chair we go... Seriously that is the name of the place...
very clean and they were very serious about checking my ID and having the proper documentation notarized before proceeding. I will admit that when I walked in I wanted to grab her and
When my Rebel is settled on something she doesn't let go.. she is like a dog with a bone! She is even more stubborn then her momma and that is really saying something!
So to the private room we proceeded and I have to admit it was VERY clean as well. Trust me I was looking for any reason to leave, but even the floors looked clean enough to eat off of. (DARN IT!)
Ok so here she is getting the area sanitized.
She looked so hard like she was trying not to be scared.
I told here we could STILL leave! But no go, Rotten KID!
Back into the chair she goes!
Doesn't she look like she is in soooooo much pain!
I about passed out here! I am such a WUSS
Holding big Bro's hand and squeezing.
My poor silly girl!
It went fast. Actually I was surprised how fast it all happened but
I WILL NEVER do anything like that to myself.
I think I am happy to be a WUSS. I love being a wuss!
I will wear my WUSS badge with pride if I don't ever have to watch that again!
So it is done. I didn't faint.
Almost but not quite.
She is smiling from ear to ear and I am sure her Father is ready to kill us both!!!
(But we told him back in Nov. He just won't remember)
But I did promise and a promise is a promise.
It's all over and you can't even really see it But look at the smile on that girls face!
May not have been the smartest thing I have ever promised. But I am picking my battles and I guess I figure it is better then what she could WANT or DO! She "promised" me that this was all she would ask for anyway and my Rebel is big on the promise whether or not she making it or hearing it. You break a promise and you are DIRT to her. She is as loyal as they come. And I am proud to say I taught her that even when it is hard!
