New Glasses

This was Theo this morning before we set off for school, all smart in his uniform and new glasses. On the walk down to school he was telling me that he was really looking forward to showing all of his friends at school his new glasses.

I have to admit that when we picked them up from the opticians on Friday after school I nearly cried. They make his eyes look so big, I didn't realise just how strong they would be. I know that the prescription is high but it's not the same seeing the glasses on his face rather than just numbers on a piece of paper.

I was told by the opticians to expect a fight to get him to keep them on but we've had no problems at all. One of Adam's friends from work said that when her two daughters got their glasses, the one whose prescription was the weakest (hence glasses made less of a difference) was always taking off her glasses, but the one who had the stronger prescription just put her glasses on and got on with it, presumably because they made such a difference and she could see. I'm assuming that's why Theo has just gotten on with it.

On Saturday morning Theo came into our bedroom with his glasses on and said "Mummy, you've got spots on your face" when I asked him where and he pointed to the bridge of my nose I explained that they were freckles. He said "Have you always had them?" awww.

I was out during the day on Saturday but apparently he said to Adam, in a very considering tone, "Daddy, my glasses are a reflection of the world" Hmmm. I wonder what he's been watching.

During the day on Saturday I went to my scrapbooking crop where I got to stick photos and pieces of paper to other pieces of paper. One of my friends there had a little girl 4 weeks ago today and she brought her in to see us. Here is a photo of me and baby Chloe, isn't she gorgeous? (my two were never this small) I'm definitely feeling broody now. What are the chances of guranteeing that I get a baby girl next time? I don't think technology has got that far has it? Oh well, never mind. I'll have to settle for cuddling Chloe (and Amy-Louise if we ever get to visit Morgan)

Speaking of Morgan, the mr Potato Head was from her, thank you again :D

Theo looks highly intelligent now, and in fact he looks a lot like you! ;-)
