As DLG nears her third birthday, her mother and I wonder when she’s going to start inquiring about when she might be able to pierce her ears (like her daddy). I’m not one to go and pierce her ears before she’s able to tell me that’s what she wants. In my humble opinion, once she’s reached an age she can make that kind of decision, I think she should ask for it.
She asks for oatmeal in the morning… so I give it to her.
She asks to go to the potty… so I take her.
She asks me why baby’s cry… I tell her it’s because they don’t have a daddy like me.
She asks me “Daddy, if you have two blocks of clay in cube form and the edges are 10 cm then how many spheres with a radius of 5 cm can you make with that amount of clay?”… I tell her three.
She’s reaching an age where she can make decisions and ask hard questions. Who am I to hold her back from what she wants or wants to know?
She told me she wanted some tattoos just like me today… so I took her to my tattoo guys and she came away with a pretty awesome tattoo sleeve:
She said she wanted “hearts and stars and rainbows all up and down” her arm… so that’s what I made sure she received.
Before you go getting all judgemental on me for getting my kid tattooed before she’s even in preschool then I challenge you to a fist fight in the Wal-Mart parking lot… no one challenges my parenting abilities. I just want my beautiful daughter to be happy. If tattoos are what she wants… then tattoos are what she gets. That’s the right way to do things.
Oh… before we left the tattoo shop she said she wanted to get a big heart tattoo on her tummy so I let her get one of those too:
I’m… so… proud… of her!!!
What do you think of toddler tattooing?
then x = ?
