age appropriate

I always said that once my little girls were old enough to ask to have their ears pierced, that I would allow them to.  Now that Macy is three and asks me all the time to get her ears pierced, I don’t feel the same way at all!  I feel like she is still so young and getting a piercing is a big deal!  I even tried some scare tactics by telling her that piercing them may hurt, and she said that’s fine!

For now, she’s content with some clip-ons, but I don’t know how long this is going to last.  One part of me feels like it’s not such a big deal since we probably will pierce them sooner or later, but the other part of me wants to wait until she’s a little bit older.  My mom made me wait until I was 12 to have my ears pierced, and while I feel that is a bit extreme, I think this little girl is going to have to wait at least another year!  Do your girls have their ears pierced?  At what age did you feel that it was appropriate?
