Parental Consent

Scene: The Grocery Store Check-Out Line

"See Daddy, that baby has earrings," says the little girl pointing at my daughter, "and those aren't even clip-ons, those are real."

I turn and smile at the man. A father to father moment I am thinking. I have no problem with him not wanting his daughter to have earrings. He should have no problem with my decision, right?

"First its earrings," he says to his daughter and me, "then boys, then tattoos, then who knows what..."

"I know what you mean," I reply, "we're waiting till she turns two to get her belly button pierced."

Well, you could really shake things up and get her a boyfriend before the tatoo.
