High up on our priority list was to take Elizabeth to have her ears pierced. As a girly girl she had wanted her ears pierced for a long time but when she was on treatment this was not an option. Being a bit of a clever clogs she had never forgotten that I said she could have them done when she was not on treatment and she bought herself some new earrings whilst at Disneyland Paris.
The lady was fantastic and helped us choose suitable earrings and gave us lots of information of how to care for her ears. Claires offer a service of having both ears pierced at the same time if you think your child won’t cope with having them done separately. With Elizabeth being used to needles and injections I knew it wouldn’t be a problem and with a slight “ouch” on the first ear she was able to sit nicely throughout.
Spending time together doing things like this is really important but time is a commodity that we don’t seem to have enough off. Paypal have really helped me to appreciate my time this weekend as I avoided the crowds and spent some magical moments with Elizabeth instead.
