"Spectacle's!"

We took Lillian to the Ophthalmologist this past Friday, and it turns out that she is far sighted and needs glasses. Her extreme caution when running, jumping, and maneuvering up and down stairs may be due to the fact that she is not seeing as she should! I'm not sure why I was a little surprised... you see, I have had to wear corrective lenses since I was three (3) years old. I too, am far sighted. Ironically, our prescriptions are just about identical. I have to be honest, I was a little saddened by hearing the news... not because I'm scared of how she is going to look or anything but because wearing "thick" (30 years ago) glasses was extremely difficult for me. I was the center for MANY jokes. Glasses paired with a unique name... most days were mere torture. I am so grateful that technology has made glasses lighter and thinner and that wearing glasses is highly fashionable these days.. Besides, only the most special children GET to wear glasses! :) Here is a photo of Lillian trying on her new frames. They will arrive next week.... Her Bear is also in desperate need for glasses soooo be on the look out for those photos!

I like them! My daughter wears glasses too and is very good with keeping them on!
