Today is Kyra’s birthday (she turned 10) and she was clothes-shopping with Laralee, looking for a suitable outfit, when La sprung the big question on her:

“Do you want to get your ears pierced?”

I imagine that’s what every ten-year-old girl wants to hear, because Kyra was ecstatic. She forgot all about the clothes and started dreaming of hoops and colors and danglies and whatever. Of course it’ll be six weeks before she can take out the posts and get “real” earrings, but she’s so excited it’s fun to watch.

I guess my little girl is growing up…
