one frame, two frame, red frame, blue frame

old frames, without tape

The new frames arrived today!  Given that Zoe’s old frames were holding on by a bit of electric tape and a prayer, it was welcome news. I decided to take Iris’s suggestion, and the old glasses are now in Zoe’s memory box.  I think it’ll be fun to look back years from now, at just how tiny those glasses are.

I had naievely assumed that since Zoe had been so good with her glasses, that the switch to the new frames would be an easy one.  I forgot a few important points:

  1. the old frames were wire, the new frames are plastic – they fit her face differently.
  2. her prescription has changed (it’s weaker).
  3. but most importantly: she’s two – not an age known for making things easy.

  1. I just love both those frames! Two is always a good thing, as well. Today, when I took Franklin in, I had one pair in a plastic baggy and the other just barely staying on his face (yay, nerd strap). Both frames were repaired (ask me about the black plastic “sleeve” they put on one pair to fix them, so stylish), and I bought a new pair with his new prescription. He has to have his eyes re-checked in 2 months, so I’ll probably buy a Costco pair then when we know the prescription is stabilized. Actually, I should take a picture of the black thing for the blog, it’s weird….

  3. How nice to have 2! And I love the color and style choices. The optometrist said that there are a whole bunch of new frames for toddlers coming out this year. (Jan. I think?) I can’t wait =)
