Mojo has been asking for about a year now to pierce her ears. We waited to make sure that's really what she wanted to do, and then we decided that she could get them pierced for her 8th birthday. Her birthday is in 2 weeks, but we got them a little early. She was really nervous that it was going to hurt, but she did fine! She only flinched a little. Now she's really excited about her new earrings!
Here she is showing off her new earrings (click on thumbnail):
