Sweet Boy gets glasses
This post is kind of off the subject of paper crafting but I had to share. Our son who is 10 years old told us a few weeks ago that he had been seeing things blurry. We waited a while to see if it would go away. It didn't. So we headed to the eye dr. And the news was what I expected - Glasses! The doc said he is still a little too young for contacts, so this was really our only option if he wanted to see better. Cortland was shocked more than anything. Cortland is a very athletic little boy and his greatest fear was that this would inhibit his playing ability. Once I assured him that we would get him some sport's goggles and that he could still do anything he normally did, he was OK. I think he was even a little excited to pick some out. It's been a few days since he got them and all is going well. The next big hurdle will be school. Hopefully, no one will be insensitive to him and make a comment that would hurt his feelings. I'll keep my fingers crossed and say a little prayer for that =).
