not peircing ears... any quippy comebacks?
It's not a "quippy" comeback but I simply say that too many times, when baby's ear's are pierced, often they end up in the wrong place when they become adults. I remember a girlfriend mentioning how "well placed" mine were. She lamented that she couldn't wear studs, only danglies. She had hers' done as an infant. I had mine done at age 18 so yeah, they knew where to place them!
If you look carefully, even as small children, the holes are often too high, low, too much to the left or right... If you wait till they're older, it's more likely that they'll be done right.
I try not to be preachy but I mention "Some girls are picky about these things. Better if she doesn't blame ME if it's not perfect!" lol!
If I don't know the person, sometimes I'll just cringe and say "Not on a BABY!" and they don't dare say anymore!
I don't know how to translate it in the language of your choice, but my sister used to say, "The last thing that I need are two more holes in my head!"
