For the longest time, my Lovey has been bugging me for a second ear piercing. Her actually, more than her ate. Of course, having been a teenager once myself, I fully understood her fascination. I also begged my mom before for a second ear piercing during high school but she wouldn’t allow, so I got hold of her ear gun similar to the one below when she was away one day & punched a hole on my lobe. Admittedly somewhat askew, but problem solved nevertheless. I hid my ears with my hair & she never knew the difference. Yeah, I’m such a bada$$ that way, rebel Jane! :P Buti nalang my girls are not as experimental & as adventurous as me. Maloloka ako kung nagkataon! :P
I went through everything as a teenager. Smoking, drinking, sneaking out. Name it, except for pot & dangerous drugs, I tried it. Even driving, my mom was just one day surprised to find out I already knew how to drive & had a license. Nilakad ko talaga ang avenida at recto to get to the A-1 driving school. Looking back now, I shudder with my hubris. I’m just thankful my guardian angel kept me safe from harm & danger and nothing bad happened to me!
Which is why as a mom now, I try to keep an open mind & not be too strict with my kids. I KNOW what it’s like living with a strict & conventional parent. I want them to know that I’m their best bud & they can tell and ask me anything without shame or judgement. I’d rather they do their experimenting with me than with other people. Or worse, sneak off & do things which may be harmful to them & detrimental to their health. But thank goodness they don’t seem to want to experiment that extensively. Mabuti naman! Maybe reverse psychology DOES work! ;P
Because I want to be as supportive as I can –within means of course, I took them to their Pedia the other day to make sure everything was sterile & safe. I don’t want some hippie piercing their ear with a dirty needle & potato! Anyway, it’s just ear piercing, I mean what harm can an extra hole do, right? Worst case? You’d need to get them extra earrings, lels. I mean it’s just a teeny tiny hole. Mine closed up as soon as I stopped wearing an extra earring. Not a big deal. Really. I’ll even support small tattoos & belly piercing –huwag lang sa eyebrows , tongue & nipple please! @_@ Giyera patani na yan!
