Once Tyler told Isabelle he would pay her $50 to get her ears peirced.

Mainly this was because she kept saying how she wanted to do it, year after year. But, she was too scared of the pain that her friends told her about. "Mom, it's like 5 minutes of extreme pain!!" she would say. I would laugh because Isabelle is super tough with pain and I knew it wouldn't be a big deal.

Isaac would pester her to do it. Secretly I think he thought she was wasting an opportunity that he was socially "not allowed" to have.  He pestered her so much that finally she broke and asked him never to say the word "Earrings" again.

That's when Tyler stepped in with his outrageous bribe.  The $50 bribe that she turned down.

"No- I'm just too afraid," she said.

Then one day when we were in Spain, she said, "Mom- I really want to get my ears pierced. Today."

And so we did. 

Isaac was so proud of her that he filmed the whole thing from multiple angles. When it was over he practically had tears in his eyes. 

She looked adorable. As soon as I got to wondering whether Tyler would still offer the $50, outrageous bribe, Isabelle exclaimed, "I'm so glad I didn't take any bribes- it was worth waiting till I was ready for it!"

'Atta girl!


Here are some pictures of our thrashed hotel room in Valencia, Spain. It's a strange set but Belle's earring shows :)
