Guest blogger, Michelle Pixie at Momma's Pixie Dreams, has been kind enough to provide LambAround with a post today. Enjoy it, because you won't be seeing any other posts like this here! I'm not brave enough to even get my ears pierced, let alone pierce anything else!

I got my nose pierced four weeks ago. Something I have wanted to do for a while but because I was pregnant I wasn’t able to get it done. So my husband took me to get my nose pierced as a gift. It’s not my first piercing. I have my ears pierced, I also have a cartilage piercing, and I had my nipples pierced when I was 21 and although I didn’t leave them in for very long I really enjoyed having them pierced. It wouldn’t work for my life now I can't imagine breastfeeding with piercings although I've heard it can be done?! I have to say I love having my nose pierced and would love to get more piercings but my pain threshold isn’t what it used to be so I probably won’t get anymore.

I also have a tattoo. I have a tattoo of my horoscope sign on my lower back {I know, I know my very own little tramp stamp!}. I love tattoos. I think they are very sexy when they are done right. Walking into that tattoo parlor to get my piercing done definitely sparked that feeling inside of me to get the tattoos done that I have been wanting to get done for years but have had a million excuses as to why I can’t or shouldn’t do it.

Yesterday I took Diva to her pre-kindergarten class and one of my neighbors was there. She hadn’t seen the baby since she was born so as much as I didn’t want to socialize with her I knew she would run over to peek at the baby. When she came over to see the baby she noticed my nose piercing and looked at me and said “Oh, that’s new!” I responded with a “Yes it is.” She proceeded with a comment that was a sly backhanded insult {generally get one of these every time I talk to her} she said “I never took you to be one of those people.” At first I just laughed it off but the more I think about it the more it irritates me.

What was that supposed to mean? I wish I would have asked her when she said it but I am just not one to make a scene. I am not like her in thinking I am above everyone else or pawning my kids off on the nearest stranger because I can’t be bothered for whatever reason. I don’t walk around acting like I don’t gossip {because HELLO don't we all?!} about people only to spout off at the first person that will listen.

I told Hubby that maybe it was a good thing because maybe she won’t be sending her kids over here for me to baby-sit under the pretense of a “play-date” and maybe just maybe she won’t be trying to pry into our business in hopes to get dirt to spread to the nearest person who will listen.

I guess I would rather be one of “Those People” than her kind of people. As far as I am concerned, she better not get too close to me or I might rub off and she could become one of “Those People” too!
