Lexi before getting her ears pierced.
She looks nervous, but it was quick and easy, with lots of screaming.
The big girls couldn't bear to watch so I walked them around the pharmacy while Brian stayed with Miss Lexi. Then I rescued her when it was all done.
A young man working the cash register, about 18 years old I guess, came back to watch Lexi get her ears pierced, but as soon as she started to cry he left. "I can't bear to see her cry!" he said. As soon as it was done he went back in to admire her new shiny earrings.
Another act of kindness to my children and I'm reminded again of why I love living in this country so much.
