Pippi has recently become interested in earrings. She asked me several months ago if she could get her ears pierced. I responded by telling her that she probably would have to wait. I explained to her that you have to clean your ears every night when you first get your ears pierced. She said she thought she could handle that. I told her she would need to be old enough to not need reminding. And then I said, "When I don't have to remind you to brush your teeth morning and night anymore, I will then know that you are ready to have your ears pierced."
I'm still reminding her twice each day.
So Pippi, in her typical fashion has created a solution "outside the box."She has a pair in every color in a line on her dresser. She only wears them around the house. The particular pair modelled here was designed to go with her field day shirt.
