|Looking at the world with new eyes.|
|Happy with new glasses|
End result: Glasses he picked out and seems to be fine with wearing. All reports from school say they don't have a problem getting him to wear them, and he isn't ripping them off his face as he walks away from the school like he did the first few days.
And, now Zora.
The same day we picked up Zane's glasses, Zora had an eye exam. Although she is borderline for needing glasses, hearing that they would probably not be optional in 6 months prompted me to go ahead and relent to the begging. She wanted glasses SO BAD. Pink ones, and ONLY pink ones. And none of mom's suggestions of "just try these" was met with anything resembling enthusiasm. My own mom found this funny. Can't imagine why. Going home without the glasses really ticked her off. She did not "get" why she had to leave her glasses at the office.
A few days later, her glasses finally came in. I got the call the morning of a planned "Oma Day", so instead of just Oma and Zora, I came along too and we picked up the new glasses. She was SO excited. She even got a pink lens cleaning cloth from them, which she has made ample use of.
|Pink glasses are awesome!|
Want to know who had the hardest time adjusting to the glasses?
Come on, Guess.
It wasn't Zora.
It wasn't even Zane.
It was the Dad.
I come from a family where glasses are practically a rite of passage, so I always assumed that the kids would be wearing them. Zach, owner of freakishly good vision, did not have this expectation. Not even a little bit. His tongue probably still hurts a little from biting it those first days, making sure not to say anything that wasn't completely positive within earshot of the kids. Being the awesome dad he is, he came around pretty quickly, but it was an adjustment for him.
