Rainbow daisy is the name of the flower our little Kit Kat received as her first pierced earrings!

Six? Yeah, I was thinking more like age 10 for our li’l love bug to get her ears pierced but, sometimes, as a parent, plans change.

So, off we went to get Kit Kat’s ears pierced. And, of course, here comes some kid’s crazy dad with a lens better suited for shooting elephants, but the staff were very kind and kept any thoughts of Papa-razzi to themselves.

Here, Kit Kat is ready, so ready, for earrings. Note the little pen-inked target on her left ear.

Left: before and focused. Right: after and slightly rattled, but only for a moment.

And there it is, my little girl’s rainbow daisy, along with— wait, what’s that? Yup! Mama, to match Kitara’s bravery, had her ears re-pierced with rainbow daisies, too! I love my girls.

I don’t reckon this’ll be the last time a me-imagined timeline regarding the miniature human is moved up (BY YEARS) but, at least, I’ll be there every step of the way.
