Last Friday was 19th day of the 6th month, was to celebrate the anniversary of the enlightenment of Kuan Yin, and this was the day most little girls would get their ear pierced. My MIL had been bugging me to bring my two princesses for ear piercing beginning of the year.
Despite the busy work load for the past one week, I still decided to take a half day off and brought them to the goldsmith shop.
In the car, I briefly told them what was ear piercing all about, and also how would one feel after the ear piercing was done. Also, I promised to buy them KFC Chicky Meal set which come together with Power Puff Girl toy hand phone and diary book after the ear pierced.
Same go to April. Both choose the pink stone earrings.
Now, I do the following twice a day to take good care of their ears.
1.Wash my hands thoroughly.
2.Use a cotton ball or swab to apply rubbing alcohol or antibiotic ointment to the earlobe or lobes.
3.Gently rotate the earring in the ear.
They let me do the item 2 without any fuss, but they still refused to let me do item 3. I have to leave the earrings in until their ears are completely healed. This usually takes about 4 to 6 weeks.
