Devon was about this age when she pinned down a little girl at play group and tried to pry the earrings out of her ears. We decided that was enough interest and got her ears pierced a few days later. They did the first ear and she started crying and tried to get out of the chair. Then, they showed her the earring in the mirror and immediately she sat nicely and turned her other ear to them. She let us take care of them without any fuss and even turned them herself. So, we got Morgan's ears pierced at the same age and it was a bad decision. Morgan did not really want her ears pierced and complained all the time. She fought us every time we tried to clean her ears. I decided I was not going to get Brenna's ears pierced until she was much older.
I changed my mind the day I had to dig the earring out of her ear. I figured she was telling me she was ready.
