NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO, IN THE END IT’S THEIR CHOICE
As my kids grew older, however, they started asking to change their earrings, or just not wear them, to the dismay of both my Argentine suegra and me. But I honored their wishes, the same way I let them choose their clothes from an early age.
The long and the short of it is that while I continue to wear four earrings at once, neither of my girls, now 11 and 8, wear theirs. The piercings are closed, and there is no trace of a puncture. What they will do when they’re older, I have no idea. Whether they never wear earrings to rebel against having their ears pierced as babies or get more holes than a colander in their lobes, it will be their choice.
