61st Mommy Mondays

So my daughter got her ears pierced last month...she was 11 months old. I wanted to do it sooner, but with living far away from a lot of businesses and with kids being sick so often, I hadn't been able to go do it.

I was 3 years old when I had mine pierced and I remembered it hurt! I didn't want my daughter to feel that so that was my main reason for getting hers pierced so young. The other reason is she still has very short hair so I want to make sure people know she is a girl. One plus for my husband, I don't put bows and headbands in her hair as much - he hates them! Plus now my daughter pulls them out after a while.

What age would you let your daughter's get their ears pierced? How old were you when you got yours? I've heard lot of "controversy" on the topic so I'm interested in your thoughts. Most people that I know what their daughter to be old enough to choose to do it.

I got mine pierced at 8 and I plan on doing that with my daughter. I want her to choose if she wants them or not because I really don't like mine now.

I begged my mom to get mine done when I was in Kindergarten. I remember crying, but I'll let my daughter get hers done when she wants them.

How did your daughter do?

I didnt get mine done till I was 16.
No real reason for waiting that long, my parents always let us choose when we were ready. That was just the time I was finally interested in it!
I would love to get my daughters done now, but hubby wants to wait till she is older so I'm trying to hold out :)
