I hate being away from blogging as I feel the ‘return post’ should be a high caliber read (and because I miss you all). Sorry to disappoint but this ‘return post’ will not meet up to caliber standards but may bring a few things into focus (you’ll get that pun as you read on—does my corny humor count for anything?)
A year ago Skyler began to complain that her eyes hurt. I like a good mom held out to see if the “complaint” was legit. When the headaches began to accompany the eye pain we decided it was time for an eye check. After many tests including dilating her eyes, which by the way was really freaky not to mention she kept bumping into things, it was discovered that my nearly 7 year old was a tad farsighted and would require glasses. Now that was a great example of a run-on sentence….didn’t think you would get an English lesson too did ya?
The past few weeks Skyler complained of pretty consistent headaches and technically I was supposed to take her for a check-up anyway. The result...a stronger prescription! Apparently her eyes are getting better yet she required a stronger prescription. Some mumbo jumbo about the eyes still growing…..not sure I understand but anyway. The tech asked Sky if she would like to keep her old glasses or pick out a brand new pair (she emphasized “brand new”). Um, hello she is a female; can you guess what her response was…. Brand new of course!!
Remembering my insurance covered every penny and knowing they would want her to look her best (ha) I decided to give the girl what she wanted.
The interesting thing about picking out the glasses was she seemed to go for a more mature pair last year yet this year she went for the metallic purple with glow in the dark flowers on the side, little girl ones. Despite my attempts to sway her to something different, I must admit she looked good in every pair she put on. She definitely does glasses well.
This is last year's look.....
