It was inevitable that sooner or later Amara would end up needing to wear glasses. With the exception of her Dad, she comes from a long line of eyeglass wearers! Her Mommy started wearing them when she was about 4 so she wasn’t surprised when the doctor told her Amara needed them, too. It’s her right eye of course. Fortunately, she only has to wear them for reading and doing art and work up close. Her Mommy wore her's all of the time!
Grandpa and I went over the night she got them to see how cute she looks — and she does. Once again I was reminded of how lucky we are that they only live a mile away and that we can do that! She is so excited about what all of her friends at school will say. She showed us the awesome vibrant green case that she would keep them in, she was very excited and very proud.
When we first found out she would need glasses she told me that “Glasses make you look extra smart Grandma.” I don’t know if the doctor told her that or she heard it somewhere else but since we all wear glasses I completely agreed with her! I even told her how when I was in 1st grade, that must have been a hundred years ago, that I didn’t wear glasses and I really wanted to. My best friend in 1st grade did wear them and she would let me borrow them. Problem was her prescription was very strong and I couldn’t see a thing out of them but I thought they made me look cool. Amara loved hearing the story.
