Jonathan already crammed 40 hours of work into this week, so he had today off! We took the kids into Downtown Denver to walk up and down the 16th Street Mall and ride the tram. While we were walking, we passed a Claire's Boutique. We asked Blue if she wanted to get her ears pierced. She said, "Yes," so we took her inside and she chose some pretty little blue earrings. (Blue loves the color blue.  Now you see the origin of this nickname!)

She was so amazing. My daughter is much braver than me. She jumped a little when they pierced her ears and that was it. No tears. Nothing.

After it was over, I picked her up out of the chair and held her and she said, quietly, "I don't want my earrings anymore. I want to take them out." I asked if her ears hurt and she nodded. We bought some children's Motrin at a nearby Rite-Aid and gave her a little bit of it but by then she seemed completely fine.

Then we went to McDonalds and got them both a strawberry sundae to celebrate:
