A Little Lawyering Never Hurts

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks

Karenna's fifth birthday is coming up, and she's been waiting a whole year for it.  Why?  Because she wants to get her ears pierced, and we would not allow it until she was five.

A little over a year ago, as her fourth birthday approached, she began planting the seeds for the ear piercing:

Karenna: When I'm four, I can have my ears pierced.
Me: Says who?
Karenna: Says me.
Chris: You're not getting your ears pierced until you are school-aged.
Me: Yeah, I wouldn't go any younger than five on that one.
Karenna (feeling cheated): Well, my contract says when I'm four I get to have my ears pierced!


(She was watching The Little Mermaid a good bit at the time, so we assume the contract idea came from Ursula's contract with Ariel.)
