  • On the same planet that allows us to be critical of other parents decisions that have no bearing our own families or children.

  • LOL - I would hope the ears don't get mutilated anywhere. Mine and dd's just have a little hole. She was 5 when she got it done (same with me). Our ears look fine, but now I should go check in the mirror to make sure they aren't mutilated.

    Too funny!

  • I don't think its mutation, but I think that you should at least wait until the child knows whats going on...
