We noticed that Sadie was looking a little cross-eyed every now & then. Took her in for an exam yesterday to find out that she is far-sighted & came home with these glasses which she needs to be wearing all the time. We're going to have to work up to that though. She is interested in them, but wants to play with them. I know they can take a lot of the handling that she'll give them, but it's hard for me to watch knowing how much they cost.
I have to admit that I had a lot of really emotional mood swings about these glasses yesterday. Felt sad that those big pretty eyes of hers that I love so much are now behind a pair of glasses & don't really look the same. And, I just felt sad to see my little baby in glasses...which I guess made me more sad because she's NOT a little baby. I found it interesting that when talking to my dad last night he said "Well, this is just what she has to deal with in this life." & I knew that, just had to cry a little & get over it. But what my dad said made me think.....no wonder I am the way I am. No wonder I can think of things in this life on a spiritual level & understand & feel peace about it....because my mom & dad are the best at that. That's how I was raised. Just thought that was so cool.
And, Dylan thinks it's cool that the little one has glasses now. He says she'll be the cute, nerdy girl. And she is still cute as can be, and still the exact same girl she was the day before, and she gave me lots of hugs & kisses this morning. How do they know when their mommas need that the most? Maybe that was a little gift from my Father in Heaven saying....it's all good.
