Today was sunny, and it sort of made me sad. I took the kids to the zoo. After we got everything from the car into the stroller, I took out my daughter’s sunglasses and put them on her face. Franklin said, “Mommy, did you bring my sunglasses?” Sigh. I had to tell him he couldn’t wear sunglasses anymore because he had to wear his SpongeBob glasses, and he was pretty upset with me right away. We talked about how it’s very important for him to see clearly and he can always wear his baseball cap to protect his eyes, but still. He told me he will miss his star sunglasses, as seen in this picture with his cousin.
It’s going to be sunny all summer, what do you think? Should I let him wear sunglasses sometimes? I just don’t know, I feel bad that he can’t be cool in his shades anymore. Maybe he won’t care after a few weeks, maybe I’m over thinking it, but I still feel bad. It’s just yet another thing to deal with!
