Notice anything different?
Here, let me blow it up for you...
Her earring is gone!!!! Nooooooo!!!!!
I realize you probably think I'm overreacting. It's just an earring, right? Nicole has her ears pierced and we have a gazillion little girl earrings all over the place. But these were special. There's a little notch in the back that makes them very hard to get off. That's handy for little girls with grabby hands. Also, they were tiny. I mean really tiny! They were the smallest diamond earrings I could find. I love having her ears pierced, but I don't want some huge gaudy bling on her face. These were perfect (and they weren't cheap) and she's been wearing the same pair for over a year. I was crushed. The bad thing about it being so small is that it would be next to impossible to find. Especially since I have no idea when or where it fell out. I searched her floor and managed to find the back. The back doesn't do a lot of good without the front! I searched her room, but I haven't vacuumed in a few days and it was like looking for a needle in a haystack. So frustrating! I had basically given up after about 45 minutes of crawling around my house.
This is my carpet: (the earring is in this picture, do you see it?)
Fast forward to this morning. I had to change Tori's diaper and she was doing her best to escape. I managed to catch her (she's really fast!) and plopped her down on the floor. Lo and behold, her earring was right where I pinned her down! I was so excited! I cannot explain my joy!
So, now she has two earrings in and her face is dirty.
Everything is right in the world.
