Glasses here...

....there and everywhere!

I wear glasses...the Accountant wears glasses
and now...

Shea wears glasses.

The state of Illinois mandates that every child
entering kindergarden must have a complete eye exam.

Mac and Hannah did not have this mandate so
I just never thought about it.

When I received the letter from school, all I could think
was that "here we go again, more government involvement...
don't they understand moms know best."

Well, much to my surprise the doctor said Shea
really needed glasses. One eye is worse than the other and let
me tell you...these glasses are stong...yikes.

My guilt consumed me and I immediately brought
Mac and Hannah in.
Thankfully, they are just fine and no glasses needed.

I have had glasses since 2nd grade, so I understand that they are
a pain in the butt.  I also understand seeing clearly is a blessing.

He's such a trooper!!!

Oh Shea looks adorable in his new specs! My children have all had glasses...the older two now have contacts...but the youngest still has his. Been through all kinds of twisted bows, missing lenses, and nose pieces that fall off. But he wears them all the time...says he can't see a thing with out them! Actually I think children who get them at a younger age actually do quite well and adapt quickly, it's like they become "a part of them" and not quite a struggle to keep them on (at least for us it was easy).
Here's lookin' at you, kid! ;-)
