I was thinking the other day about some of the advantages to having a small child with glasses – beyond the obvious reason that it helps them to see. Here’s what I’ve come up with so far.
- When pinkeye starts going around daycare, she doesn’t catch it or spread it around, because she can’t rub her eyes as easily.
- When learning to use a fork, she’s less likely to poke herself in the eye.
- Cute glasses mean strangers fail to notice the stains on her shirt.
OK, I’m sure there’s more. Please add any that you come up with.
