Lucy has been asking for earrings for a very long time, like 3 years. Four was a little young in my book. Actually, so is 7. But we did it. Both girls, same day. Lucy went first. She chose her birthstone color - aquamarine.
Mae chose simple silver balls.
So far we've had no problems. Everyone has been able to sleep, swim, eat and practice soccer with them in. I'm afraid they'll have to take them out for soccer games, but we'll get these nifty clear plastic ones.
