Grabbing the glasses…

For the last few months, Kiddiewink 3 has been grabbing her glasses from our hands when waking from a nap. She then, usually proceeds to eat them .
This morning, she grabbed her glasses and proceeded to try and put them on! We were so excited because it means she now completely accepts them as a part of her, she is independently choosing to put them on. Rather than passively accepting them.
This happened again after her nap!

We are so lucky that she accepted them straight away and never takes them off. To see a just turned one year old trying to put on her glasses, is adorable!

Long may the glasses love continue… Our thoughts are with those currently on a glasses battle with their kiddiewinks! Stay strong, they’ll get used to them in the end.



Christmas money spent on glasses-bless!

My eldest kiddiewink has been desperate for glasses since she was three; even more so since both her siblings have them. Everytime she is tested, disappoint is etched on her face, when they tell her her eyes are perfect! This time she had a back up I plan, on being told she didn’t need them, she replied that was fine as she was going to use christmas money to buy some. Despite the staff trying to convince her she wanted to spend it on something else, she was not to be swayed and her first pair of clear lens glasses was ordered.
Days were counted down until their arrival and the opticians made a lovely fuss of fitting them and telling her about glasses care. She was over the moon and I am so pleased. Two weeks on and the novelty has worn off and she longer wears them everyday for school. I think she is just happy to be like her siblings when she chooses to be.





They have arrived!

So…. Just had a phone call from the opticians to say Kiddiewink 3’s glasses have arrived! The main lady we deal with has left for the day but is in tomorrow, I feel really guilty but I can’t wait that long! We are having the photoshoot for the book tomorrow so I know it would make sense to wait but I don’t think I can! If hubby gets home before they shut I will go tonight so hubby can be there, if not at least we can get professional pictures of the moment she puts them on! If she does get them, we can recreate the moment tomorrow!

Can’t believe how excited I am, like a kid at Christmas haha.
