Both girls had strep last week…
At the doctor…
And we? have an appointment.
Finally in comes the PA
This is one we have not had before
Which is surprising with the frequency of our visits.
Honestly I have stopped dead in my tracks
Is considerably older than me
(which means she could probably die at any moment)
And she has?
A nose stud.
Not a nose bud…
A little earring stabbed through her right nostril.
Seriously if that is your deal… rock on
I am going to stare.
I just am.
I just cannot imagine how much that hurt…
or the maintenance required…
And what with the boogers and all…
So Tenny is too young to really grasp this.
Maybe she will not notice the sparkly emerald gem.
Perhaps I am safe.
But then I see the child is mesmerized…
And here it comes.
Pointing at the twinkle
Nearly laying her hand on it.
“Oh…that is an earring”
“Mommy puts dose in her ears…
(Mommy is DYING!)
“When I was 60, I decided I needed it for my birthday”
“Oh… your burfday?”
“It my burfday tomorrow…
Mommy can I…?
“NO NO NO NO NO NO”
This is all I can envision in about 10 years.
