The Results May Vary

Observations from my Mixed Up World

The New Glasses are NOT Helping Me

1 Comment

It turns out that Maya needs glasses.  I’m not upset or horrified or figure that kids will tease her.  Both her mom and I have some latent parental guilt over the fact that neither of us thought there was a problem.  It seems she as astigmatism.  Her eyeballs are more like footballs as opposed to basketballs and the things she sees without glasses are askew.

So anyhow, we picked them up tonight and she is wandering around getting used to them.  Here’s what she said…

“Daddy, the floor looks much bigger now.  It’s up to here.”  She raises her foot 3 inches off the ground.

“You know what Daddy, your belly looks much bigger now too.”

I’m so pleased we fixed her vision.
