MIM #92

"They grow up so fast!
Nose and Industrial Barbell Piercings for my baby girl...
who is no longer a baby. :sniff:
Both fit her look/personality so well!
She didn't even flinch with the barbell but got a little bit teary-eyed with the nose piercing.
Her dad and I almost hurled with both, bahahaha! #TrueStory

I have my nose pierced; got it done about 2 years ago.
I have also had my belly button pierced, though it's been since removed, and I have 2 sets of piercings in my ears.
So you would think it'd be no big deal for me for my daughter to get piercings.
And it wasn't, I mean the concept wasn't... I can accept that she's growing up...barely...
But, OMG actually seeing her get pierced, knowing someone was placing 3 holes into my daughter, aside from just a regular ear piercing that I had her get as a baby, it... it LITERALLY made me sick to my stomach. In fact as I write this and remember it, I'm getting sick to my stomach again, LOL

Anyway, she loves it and it fits her so well and makes her so happy that I love it too!
Even her dad, the biggest critic about these type of things, thinks it looks great on her!
But yeah, the growing up part he's not so cool w/!

My printer was having issues and I fixed it but during the interim I was not scrapping and lost my mojo ::le sigh:: But I've still been ...
