I love earrings--big ones. I didn't realize, though, that this earring obsession mattered to anyone but myself.
The other morning we were getting ready to go to the Library for story time. I had shoes and coats on everyone and we were about to get in the car when Maggie looked at me with a sort of shocked expression and yelled, "Mom!" "What Maggie?" I asked. "Mom! Your earrings!" she yelled. Then I realized that I wasn't wearing any. From Maggie's expression you'd have thought I'd forgotten my pants. I put on some hoops and we were out the door.
Thanks Mags, that was a close one!
