her navel. We originally said "nope"- too young, doesn't feel right to us. but lately I've wondered if we just say no as a knee jerk response- she's a freshman in high school, plays softball, keeps up her grades, she's clean (obsessed with clean in fact, lol...) and responsible. I kind of feel that we're perhaps fighting a battle that doesn't need to be fought- what's the real harm I wonder? She wants to express herself and excercise her own personality and style- she dresses conservatively for the most part (except for those darn short shorts, but jesus you can't even find long ones anymore and when I do she swears she feels like an amish girl in them, lol)- but she's fairly shy, quiet- I don't think the piercing will turn her into girls gone wild and maybe sometimes the path of least resistance is okay, right? I mean, yes, we need to press her to keep up her grades, and yes, she does need to clean her room, but if she wants a different haircut or a navel piercing, I have begun to think why NOT? really?
