To See, Or Not To See....

This has been the question for most of the year as far as Amber's been concerned. lol She's been complaining about not seeing the board at school very well, but since we had no insurance for her or Jade since last summer, there was nothing I could do about it.....until now. Amber and Jade FINALLY got put back on our insurance so I've been taking care of their check-ups before school starts. Last month was the dentist, and this morning was the optometrist. Jade came along for the ride just to be sure her eyes hadn't changed. Turns out Amber's left eye is slightly lazy and making her right eye do all the work. So she took a trip over to the kids' glasses and picked out a cute pair that fit her face well. Jaders eyes are perfect - much to her dismay. She really wanted glasses, too. Oh, well. We were at the office for just under 2 hours which equals pure torture for Paisley (and me, too!). Thankfully, we made it out of there without breaking a single pair of frames and no super huge meltdowns, picked up McD's on the way home, and now my lovely 2yr old is sound asleep. What a morning!
When Amber was brought into this room and saw the big eye instrument by the chair, she got extremely nervous and forced me to stay in there with her. Silly girl! =)

Jade, of course, was all smiles and giggles.

Amber's glasses she chose. We will pick them up next week. She only really needs them for classroom work and reading, so she'll wear them in her class and take them off for recess. Hopefully this will help keep them in one piece till next year...

I was like Jade and really wanted glasses when I was a kid - so I was an idiot and would borrow my mom or Julie's when they weren't around and wear them. Yeah that was really dumb because I'm like half blind now. I probably would have needed glasses anyways cause most of my family does - but it was still dumb...so don't let her do that!

Also to answer your question on my blog - we don't have a name officially picked out yet. We have a couple favorites and we will decide when he's born. :)

Walmart (although I hate the place) is good for glasses because you can get frames for $10 and they have a 1 year no questions asked warranty on the frames. Are Amber's eyes going to be okay? Adam got glasses a little late and he is still having trouble getting his eyes to see together. We have had to do eye patch therapy.
