Oh! I forgot something! Four years ago, my mom told me she wanted a Pandora bracelet, so I got her one and a "mom" charm for Mother's Day. I have it now and wear it sometimes.

Here's the thing. There's still only that one "mom" charm on the bracelet. Whenever there was a birthday or holiday or something, I'd ask mom if she wanted another charm and she'd think about it and then say no. When we went to Disney together, I'd ask and she'd consider. And say no.

So here's my question. Now that I'm wearing the bracelet, should I get more charms for it? I know if it were my bracelet, Mom would always be getting me charms whether I wanted them or not! But I sort of love the story of the charm bracelet with one lonely charm.

Please post your opinion on whether or not I should get Pandora charms or not.

Gahhh!! So excited for you. This is truly an adventure of a lifetime! So much to see and do.... All I can think of is the Terra Cotta Warriors at Epcot, and how you would occasionally see one smirking at you.

I voted no to the charms - to add on to your current bracelet. Perhaps purchase a separate bracelet for additional charms? I don't know. Something is so cute about your mom considering more charms and then deciding not to add to it. She must have had a reason.

Just getting caught up PSha! Awesome plans! What an amazing trip this is going to be. Can’t wait to hear all about it! I’d get a separate bracelet for yourself and start collecting the charms, and keep your Mom’s separate! Have a great time!

Have an awesome trip!! I will be sending you a request to follow you on Instagram.

Regarding the Pandora bracelet, I second what Marnie said. I'd keep mom's bracelet with just the one charm and get a separate bracelet and add charms to that one.

Oh my goodness, I am absolutely exhausted just reading your itinerary. Wow.

Ok, I am now exceptionally jealous with the words "baby pandas". This is my biggest bucket list thing now - to visit the panda nursery and I'm very pleased to discover we've got a bigger chance of seeing them in the fall!

You have yourself a completely magical time! I cannot wait to hear all about it!

Well, by my calculations, you should likely be in the parks enjoying yourself right about now. I can't wait to hear all about your trip after you get settled into your new home.

As to the bracelet, I have to agree with others. I would not add to your Mom's bracelet, since she had the chance and always refused. It is very special exactly the way it is. I do think it might be fun to get your own bracelet with charms and wear the two together.

I am exhausted just reading that itinerary!
But what a trip this will be!
I hope holding a baby panda, if not part of the organized trip already, is something you Spring for. My kids held a maybe 3 month old. We all hung out with a one year old, but I regret not holding the baby myself.
Don’t eat fuzzy beef - a street food you’ll see in Chengdu. That’s all I’ll say about it. I still have PTSD from the experience. But generally speaking, the food everywhere is delicious! It will make you realize you can’t eat Chinese food in the US for a while, as it’s not the same....

What a trip!!! Excited for you! After voting on you adding a charm to your mom' s bracelet, I changed my mind and agree with the other posts that you keep your mom's bracelet as is and buy you a bracelet, add charms and wear both bracelets. Enjoy your trip!!!!

What an amazing trip! I can't wait for your TR!

Before I saw the other responses, I was of the opinion to keep your mom's bracelet as it was. She kept it that way for a reason. I would buy a companion bracelet to add other charms to instead and wear them together.

I have a "Disney only"" Pandora bracelet, and I love adding to it! I agree with everyone else: get your own; keep hers as is.
