We’re now past the one year mark with glasses – and into the age of the terrific (or is that terrifying?) twos – and Zoe’s throwing us a new twist. She’s started refusing to take off her glasses when it suits her wishes and her mood. I first noticed it at her eye doctor appointment last week. It all went well, but she refuses to take off her glasses for her ophthalmologist. She was fine having them off for the assistant who does the first set of eye tests, but not for her doctor. As far as I could tell, she just didn’t want to doctor to be able to reach her eyes – I’m not sure if she still has memories of the surgery, or what it is. It’s not the eye drops, since she gets those before she even sees her doctor. Luckily the doctor was able to do the exam with Zoe’s glasses on.
And now she’s started not letting me take her glasses off if she doesn’t want to go to sleep at night or naptime. The little stinker – she keeps getting smarter, and I have to keep up. It’s certainly not the problem I expected to be having a year ago.
