A gorgeous photo shoot celebrating the end of 2646 hours of patching!
Picture of the day: This guy just turned two and has only had glasses for about five months. As you can see we have lizards in our yard….. While he was playing in the pool today he saw a lizard on the wall across the yard and asked for his ‘gosses’ to see the ‘izard’!!!
I always hear complaints of teenagers being selfish and rude but I’m not seeing it (this being one example this year). I did ask her if she got made fun of in school, she said that no one makes fun of her except her close group of friends but “they have permission to tease me.” This is the generation that is holds our future, teens who advocate for their friends in need despite the whiplash are superheroes in my book.

I want to share my journey as a parent to any new parents in this group. I was devastated at first when I heard that our beautiful little firecracker needed glasses when she was a little over two. Hearing that she is severely farsighted (hyperopic) was a tough blow – surprisingly tough – even though she did not suffer and the fix was easy. I researched the issue like crazy, obsessed over the diagnosis and worried about what her future entailed as a bespectacled little lady. I need not have worried.
An important PSA about glasses.
