Samsmama’s post yesterday about Sam breaking his glasses got me to thinking about how long we can really expect frames for our kids to last. I know I was surprised when we hit 6 months with Zoe’s frames, and no irreparable damage (though many, many trips to the store for minor repairs and adjustments). Zoe has had her share of face-plants with the glasses, along with tons of taking them off and bending them in all directions other than the ones they’re supposed to go in. I realize going in to it, I assumed that we’d have to replace them in 6 months, but that wasn’t based on anything at all, except maybe my gut belief that toddlers and glasses are not particularly compatible.
So in the interest of science, I propose a completely non-scientific poll:
- How long have your child’s frames lasted?
- How old was your child when they got the frames?
- Have you had to replace the frames? If so, did your child do the unthinkable and actually outgrow the frames, or did something else happen to them?
- What kind of frames?
You can vote more than once if you’ve been through multiple frames (or have multiple kids in glasses) or if you just want to skew the results.
