Ruby decided that she wanted earings today. So we loaded the kids up in the car -7 degree weather with a 30 below windchill and went to Swanson's. They had a trained ear piercer who looked about 16 years old. She did a good job, and used good clean technique. Ruby let out a cry at the first piercing, she then got prepared for the next one. She was super brave. She says " I was so scared." As soon as she saw herself in the mirror, she was so excited, and of course now she seems to have forgotten the experience.
