This is my first month participating in this blog circle. As a non scrapbooking, terrible memory mother I love that I get to remember something special each month. Especially since becoming a mother (and even worse when I started my business) unless something is written down, it is forgotten.
So, this month my images are all about my four year old’s rainy day eye doctor visit.
Head on over to my friend, Summer’s blog to view her amazing work. She’s one of my favorites and consistently wows me with her images.
Dear Chick (your fabulous nickname),
I hate that you have to wear your glasses to see everyday. (And hate it even more that it took us until you were four to discover your supremely horrible vision.) I am sad for you that you need to wear a patch for three hours daily to “wake up” your lazy eye. I do enjoy that you wear your patch during our sacred “cuddle time” in the morning though. There’s nothing like your little warm body next to mine on these cold winter mornings while we watch “Curious George” together. Did I mention how I love cuddle time?
But, as much as I dislike that you have to wear glasses and your patch and visit the eye doctor every few months, I love what you’re seeing and doing now that you can actually, um, see. The day after you got your glasses you started writing your letters. You started learning your numbers. You started to want to read more. My guess is that with 20/200 vision you couldn’t see anything before (which again, breaks my heart). I love watching you learn and grow and see the world.
Plus, I really didn’t think it was possible for you to be any cuter. I was wrong. You in glasses is cuter. Really.
