Awww, But I Really Want Glasses

 On the way to the girls eye appointment. He is so full of expressions!

Breanna and Caitlin had to endure the wonderful thing called an eye exam yesterday! They handled it like pro’s and did an amazing job! They both came out with 20/20 vision! Bre has some slight “problems” with seeing close up. Nothing that has left any concern and not enough to purchase glasses. This of course, left Breanna upset because she wanted glasses! What? Yes, she wanted glasses, so she was hoping to fail the test. Sorry kid, you passed and we will not be purchasing glasses at this time! When the eye doctor told her this, she actually looked at him and said, “Awww, but I really wanted glasse…” I just stood there looking at her like she had lost her mind! Come to find out the doctor said a lot girls her age want glasses… I guess it’s a fashion statement for them or something.

While we were there, the girls had to have their eyes dilated. Again, they did an amazing job! We are so proud of the way they handled yesterday. When it came time to leave, Breanna could not see clearly at all! She tripped over absolutely nothing and came so close to falling, then she almost walked into the wall. Poor Caitlin tried so hard to sit down and complete her homework last night. In the end, she just couldn’t see it enough to even work on it. I know how she feels! We had to end up sending a note in and making it clear that she will double up on her 
work tonight.

The kids actually liked the weird glasses they were given in order to walk outside. I hate those things! Nic was with us and made the statement that he too wanted some “cool” glasses. The nice women at the desk of course, gave him glasses!

  1. Thats not the first time I heard girls wanting glasss. Glasses were a curse when I was in school. Glad things have changed.
