My inspiration came from Lexi Puffer. My Mom asked me if I wanted to get my ears pierced while the boys went to the Father-Son camp out. I said I didn't want to because I didn't want it to hurt. (I'm being really honest here.) Mom told me to look at the Puffers' blog. Their newest post was when Lexi got her ears pierced. She said she was scared too, but that it didn't hurt that much. I kept saying, if a six-year-old can do it, so can I! So after a day and a half of worrying, it was finally over. It didn't hurt bad enough to cry. I felt pretty silly for worrying so much! :) I'll never forget that day.
