Another Milestone

As always - The Cast of Characters

Me (The Daddy)
The Bean: Age 8
The Butterfly: Age 6
The Darling Wife

The Bean is far braver than I.

Having grown up in the 80's, I tried (and often failed) to be fashion forward.

Or, at least, fashion current.

I owned Parachute Pants back when they were in style (barely).  

Damn, I was cool.

But The Bean passed another Little Girl rite this Saturday.  She got her ears pierced.  

I neither had the stomach nor the charisma to pull off pierced ears.  What if it hurt?  What if I was permanently damaged.  What if I did it and it ceased being cool? 

What if Johnny Depp didn't make 20 Pirates of the Caribbean movies?

So I wussed on getting an earring.  The Bean did not.

She held onto the DW's hand and grimaced a little.  But before you knew it, both ears were donned with shiny blue glass.

She gleamed brighter than the faux stones ever could.

The Butterfly doesn't want her ears pierced.  Ever.

I tell her that when she's ready, I'll do it with her.

I hope that Johnny Depp makes a lot of Pirate films.

  1. You're in luck! At least for now. Pirates 4 is on the way. Can #20 be far behind? ;)
