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?

My son was almost three when he got his. He wanted to match daddy

That looks so stupid.

i honestly have to say i wouldn't do it. that's a decision that he can make when hes old enough. i get where you're coming from. but you should wait till he is old enough to come to you and ask for it. then be the cool, hip mom and tell him yeah.

I don't know.  I've got no problem with ear piercings and tattoos, but on a two year old boy I might wait.  Baby girls I have no problem with and did it.  Actually when my DH bought one of our 2 yr old sons a pinky ring I didn't like that so much.

I dont think it is hip at all. I think it looks terrible but that just my opinion.

I'm not calling the kid names, I'm saying the piercing looks stupid.  You're not a bright one, eh?

hey, if you like telling kids that they "look" stupid then go for it.  doesnt make you any less of a bitch though.

Lol ok I wont!! Promise.

Quoting ATG499:

Huh. Okay. Learn something new every day!

Still, that's just mean. The only way I can tell some babies are girls is the ear piercing. Don't ruin that for me!! Lol


Quoting StevieMarie:

NOT TRUE! I had y ears pierced when I was less than 3 months old. I wore earring all the time until about 4th grade when I went through like a tomboy phase, I took them out and didnt wear anything in them for months. Hole closed completely. You couldnt even see where they had been pierced. I had to get them redone a few years later when I was into them again. Same thing with my nose and my lip, a few weeks after removal, the hole closed up. Everyone is different. Also, my best friend in 1st grade was a boy, he had one ear pierced since he was a toddler, he looooved it, and ended up changing his mind, later, his hole closed up as well. There's actually creams you can use to help it close completely.


Quoting ATG499:

Yeah, no. That's just wrong. Poor kid is gonna hate you for that. And you can't just take it out and call it good. The hole won't close all the way after it's healed.

I think putting holes in a child, is a decision they should make. Even if he decides to remove it later in life, it will leave a scar from the hole that will be an obvious piercing hole. That's something that could be embarrassing for a kid.

I guess I don't understand why? I know many people pierce ears when they are newborns for cultural reasons, and I know many little girls want pierced ears, my niece begged, and got them done at 8. However, a 2 year old seems to be a random age.

So, no, I don't think I would let my toddler get their ears pierced. I can understand cultural reasons for a newborn, but other than that it seems like something that can wait until the child is old enough to care for it themselves.
