Zoom, zoom, zoom.....there she goes.

This is the most recent photo I have of Lauren.
She should arrive here on Tuesday afternoon.
It is hard to believe that she is now 14 years old.  Where did that time go?
She has grown up a lot in the last few months.
She has gone from being a little girl, to being a teen with a crush on a band - Green Day - and wanting to wear punky type clothes.
Her thing right now, so I am told, is black.......skinny black jeans etc.
She has found a favourite shop in Canterbury - Third Eye - which I can remember shopping in.
No more pinkies, purplies & sparklies.
She is learning the guitar and plans to use Philip's to practice on while she is here.
I must remember to dust it before she comes.
Philip bought her the Green Day version of Rock Band and has secretly also bought her some cds.
He is picking her up from Chicago airport as it is close to work.
He will play the cd on the way home to surprise her.
I am sure she will be thrilled.

Anyway, we cannot wait for her to arrive.   She wants me to take her to a tattoo parlour to get her ears pierced while she is here.
Donna is still laughing about this.
She has tried taking her to get her ears pierced a dozen times or more but she always chickens out at the last minute.
Usually just as they are getting near to her ears, she makes a run for it.
Donna has told her she will never get a tattoo if she doesn't get her ears pierced.
So, she now says she wants Philip and I to take her to a proper tattoo place where they do piercings.
I phoned one today.
He was a really nice guy but needs to find out if they can do it without her mother being present.
Apparently you should have a legal guardian there when it is done.
I may not be enough.
He thinks, as it is only ears, that they may do it but needs to ask the boss.
We shall see.  

Meanwhile Donna is still adamant that the only way Lauren will stay still and have her ears pierced is if Philip sits on her.
Now that would do it.
