Using it up, wearing it out, making do and doing without in a little city in the North Atlantic. Stickin' it to the man, one crazy DIY project at a time.
The Mister and I both made it into elementary school before we needed glasses... of course, we probably didn't get tested until then. So far Moira is glasses-free but I suspect it is only because she hasn't gone to the Optometrist yet.He sure is a cutie, that boy of yours.
I had vision problems all through childhood, but they weren't diagnosed until I was ten. Here everyone (including me) had been thinking I was a total klutz, when really I just couldn't see properly. A lot of it could have been corrected if it had been caught earlier. Now I'm hypervigilant about my kids' eyes. I'm sure it's only a matter of time for Joodles...
Ironically, (ya gotta find something to laugh about) E - who has to get an MRI and opthamalogy exam every year due to his NF - has perfect eyesight while his older brother has worn glasses since he was three due to a turned eye. And just this week we discovered our daughter is blind. Legally blind in one eye. We're hoping to fix it with agressive lensing.
It's always something, isn't it? How does T feel about her impending glasses? Neither of my kids has been too bothered by them so far. Charlie only objected for the first few days, now he's all about them, probably because people keep commenting on them. He thinks he looks handsome (which, of course, he does).
