Well ... what did Jess get for her birthday you may ask? Aunty Louise thought it might be a really nice idea for her to get Jess' belly button pierced as her birthday present. However, Mum here wasn't quite so sure and had said a big fat no!!
But after the past two weeks of Jess' never letting up about it ... "Nicole's got her's done".... "All my mates are getting their's done" .... "There's nothing else I want for my birthday" .... "It's not fair!!!" .... "Aunty Sarah's got her's done" ... "You had your's done" ... "It's not fair" .... lots of sulking ... a few tears .... followed by a couple of days of large amounts of kisses, cuddles and relentless creeping ... oh and yes a rather nice pair of paua shell ear-rings (cheers Jess!!), I eventually gave in.
So, we headed down to the local tattoo and piercing place on Rockingham foreshore and she went ahead and got her belly button pierced. My god .. she really is a teenager!!! Her little face when the guy who did it, 'Bones' (a very large scary looking bloke covered in tattoos and piercings) told her that he wasn't going to numb it first, was a complete picture! Needless to say she gritted her teeth, squeezed my hand real hard and went ahead with the whole thing. It was all done within a matter of minutes and now she's the happiest teenager on the planet!!
She has been told that I definitely draw the line there though and not to even think about eyebrows, noses or tongues .... yuuuk!!
