I took Zoe Bug for her first eye exam a couple weeks ago and she ended up needing glasses. I was pretty surprised because I only took her for an exam because I was humoring her. And we have scads of medical flex money to use up from last year.
The little Drama Llama told me that her eyes hurt when she looked at the sun so I needed to take her to the eye doctor. It took every ounce of restraint I had to not reply "Well duh."
Since she has never had a standard eye exam, I decided that maybe it was a good idea to have her eyes checked. And can I tell you that I was secretly hoping that she did need glasses. And not just because we had the flex money that we had to use or lose, but because I thought she would look so cute in them.
I'm so shallow.
This is completely beside the point, but look, she's even starting to get some eyebrows to break up that forehead her Daddy gave her.
Her glasses seem to be sitting askew on her face, don't they? We had them adjusted to the millimeter, so I'm thinking this is a recent development. Maybe it's because they're being worn 24/7 because she loves them so much. I don't know about you, but when I was a kid it wasn't cool to wear glasses. People called you mean things like "Four Eyes."
But then glasses back then were uglier than sin. Not anymore. Zoe picked her glasses out all by herself, which is amazing because of my control issues. Don't be proud of me or anything though, it's just because I happened to like the glasses she picked out and they really did look better on her face than any of the others she tried on.
She really only needs them for "concentrating work" so she is always concentrating now. What a nut.
I'm thrilled about these glasses too, because I think kids look dang cute in glasses. My sweet little Four Eyed Bug.
