Unfortunately, I have not only passed on the dry skin gene to my son, but also the ill-fated astigmatism. Grand Slam now has glasses. Yep, a 3-year-old with glasses.
I’m sorry, let me rephrase: a 3-year-old BOY with glasses. Imagine, if you will, the fights to wear them and the number of pairs that will get lost or broken. My mom, who also raised a very young boy with glasses, told me that she once ran over a lost pair with the lawnmower. Sigh.
So, after the Optician told us to get really excited and make a big deal of the new specs, I decided, HEY – a party! We invited some of our family members over and they all obliged by wearing their glasses (those with 20/20 vision wore sunglasses).
I got out the old glue gun and created this pair of specs to sit on top of the poorly decorated cake:
And here is the little man, with his spectacles on, admiring his cake. He was very excited!
So far so good with the specs…keep praying for us.
