Well Sweet Girl had her first eye appointment today. She was dilated and will soon be the owner of a fine pair of JUICY Couture glasses.
I wear glasses/contacts myself. Leo wears them too so it really shouldn't shock me that she will too. But it does bum me out. I guess I feel like it's my fault, I passed on some crappy gene to her and it's resulted in the fact that she's not even five and has to wear glasses.
But as wrong as it felt buying my four year old JUICY glasses, I was also thankful. She won't have to wear frames that are the size of her own head. She'll wear glasses made for a small face. She won't have to suffer the way I did with the totally unstylish glasses and lenses that were as thick as a reem of paper. Yes for that I am thankful.
