But Mrs. Crocker…
“When are you getting Ellie Jo’s ears pierced?”
“Well, we’ll probably wait until she wants to have pierced ears. I dunno, maybe when she’s 10 or so.”
“Oh but Mrs. Crocker, then it will hurt so bad! You must do it when she is small.”
Should I tell her that most little girls in America don’t get their ears pierced as tiny babies?
