I've posted in the past about my frustration with my girls' glasses. Two of them have been in glasses for more than a year. At one point I was at the optometrist's office once a month having nose pieces replaced.
About two weeks ago it was picture day at preschool. As she stood in line, Roo's wire frame glasses snapped. She says she wasn't even touching them at the time. I believe her. Those things have been bent out of shape so many times that I'm surprised it didn't happen sooner. It's not that she doesn't take care of her glasses. She does. Sometimes, though, in those oh so fun sisterly fights, her sisters grab her glasses off her face and they get bent out of whack. The good thing in all of this is that I already had their annual eye exam scheduled for the day after pictures.
Tortilla is thrilled because the optometrist determined that her farsightedness has corrected itself enough that she no longer needs glasses. Cakes and Sue Sue have never needed glasses and still don't. Roo will likely need a vision correction for the rest of her life, although the optometrist noted even her farsightedness isn't "as bad" as it was a year ago.
After the appointment we had some decisions to make, namely what glasses Roo would wear. We spent some time looking at our options. Hubby and I narrowed it down to three pair. One pair Roo immediately nixed. Out of our choices she found the pair she wanted... pink, plastic frames. They weren't my first choice, but since they were in my top three and she liked them, I went with them. The good thing is that they don't require separate nose pieces, so I've automatically reduced my trips to the optometrist for emergency repairs. Let's just hope this pair stays in one piece for a long time! (If not, hey, at least I bought the "protection package!!")
