Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

So, my ex and I, have been on the fence about getting my 2 year old boy's ear pierced. Being the cool, hip momma, I am, I say what the hell! If he does not like it by the time he is old enough to make that decision, then we will gladly take it out..till then my baby, my desicion. But I'm wondering if anyone has ever had that thought, went thru will it, and what was everyone's reaction to it?

WOW why not wait then allow him to make the decision himself instead of leaving a permanent hole in his ear that he will not like.


I serioulsy would wait till he could choose to get it done or not.

 Here's a bump.

I would never ever ever pierce my son's ears.

For now, it's a risk. Younger kids go through that phase where he'll be called sissy  or girly. More than likely he'll want one when he's a teenager and I would let him get it then.

My mom did it and it looked stupid and everyone even strangers would say it. Wen he was old enough he took them out because one earring is cool when you're 16 but earrings even just one are girls when you are a kid. And even if he looks like a boy people may start saying she like they do with boys with long hair even though in the face they are very male looking, or they may just start asking if you knew you had a boy not a girl lol. 


Its up to you but I think it's a dumb idea. Your baby your choice doesn't really matter what we think.

Also are male earrings still cool momma I'm only 25 and haven't seen one on dude my again years, I also move a lot so it's not just my area. I think earrings on boys may not be cool any more momma.

 I wouldn't. I waited for my dd to be old enough to choose for herself.
