[First started writing this post in the first week of June]
Can’t quite believe we are already half-way through 2016. May came and went in a flash! It was super-solo-parenting season with the husband, parents and helper all away for about 10 days. There was our lil’ dragonlady’s birthday celebration to prepare for, the cub’s primary school parent-volunteering matter to see to, heaps of household chores, on top of our usual routine and work. I am rather relieved that the month of May is over, and happy that my littlest one loved everything we did for her birthday.
First highlight of her birthday was finally getting what she had been asking for since last year – ear piercings! We had prepped her weeks prior to the appointment that the procedure is going to hurt but she would always respond, “I’m not scared. I will be brave!”
At a friend’s recommendation and also because they could do both piercings at one go, I decided to bring the lil’ dragonlady to Stellar at VivoCity.
The lil’ dragonlady could hardly contain her excitement in the week leading to her ear piercing appointment.
On the day of the appointment, she happily chowed down her birthday lunch promptly so that we could get to Stellar as soon as possible.
Stellar’s friendly staff seated the lil’ dragonlady nicely on the stool and got her to choose the earrings she wanted.
Then she waited patiently for the staff to prepare everything. Stellar’s staff were very reassuring and kept their little customer updated on what to expect.
As we waited for the numbing cream to take effect, the staff proceeded to mark where to pierce on both ears.
Then it was time! My littlest one was so confident she can manage the pain, she didn’t want to hold my hand despite my offer!
I must say, she really held it together very well for a 4yo.
As she gradually got over the shock from the impact, she couldn’t help admiring her earrings every time she walked past a mirror.
She was so proud of her new accessory and showed everyone when she got home.
The lil’ dragonlady was so happy with her ear piercings and earrings, she thanked me a few times and was even okay when I couldn’t find another gift she had wanted because she already has the one she wanted the most.
