new glasses







We are fighting the battle of the glasses. She hates wearing them. She hates being different. It breaks my heart that at age 6, how she looks has become such a major issue in her life. Last visit to the eye doctor she asked him how long until she would be able to wear contacts.
In yet another attempt to make her feel more positive about the whole thing we bought a new pair of glasses. She chose them herself and I think she looks fabulous.

Don't be fooled by the smiles here.

The battle is far from over.

Abbey said they look nice and she wished she could wear them. Oh, and she's totally jealous that charlotte has lost teeth.

Very stylish! I need new glasses and those are the sort of frames I'll be looking for.

My husband, my older daughter and I all wear glasses. My seven year old is desperate for glasses of her own, to the extent that for the past two years she's tried to fake not being able to see during examinations. She's still hoping eventually her eyesight will become poor enough 8-)

I love those glasses! She looks awesome! You're right tho... such a shame that the whole image thing raises it's head so young. Children are bombarded with image/status/etc type stuff from such a young age. FWIW I've never seen such a funky looking bespectacled six year old!
