So here she is with her new glasses.. We are totally loving her cute new look, and it’s been fun to show her off to friends and family. At the office when she put them on the Optometrist said “Look outside Birdi..” and she did. I choked up a bit. She just took it in. Then we tried some other frames on (discounted frames to have a backup pair made) and she eagerly looked around and was disappointed to see (or not see) that everything looked the same. She wasn’t able to wear them for an hour while the ear loops dried, so I put them on her as she climbed out of the car. She looked around the garage and said “It’s SO CLEAN!!” I couldn’t help but laugh. She ran around touching things saying “This is CLEAN! That is CLEAN!” and then she trotted over to the garage door which was covered in smudges and said “Whoah… that door is NOT clean!”
As the day wore on, she did want them off as they did start to bother her eyes. I gave her some tylenol and she seemed to relax after that. As of this morning she is happy as a clam. A few things I do have concerns about now that she has her sassy new specs. First of all, her pupils really seem to dialate when she is wearing them. Why is that? Also, she has mentioned seeing a rainbow as they come off. I assume she is seeing some prisms. They go away, but is this something to be concerned about? Ah, and as I post this she has approached me with a bare face. Thus begins the phrase that will be heard a plenty in this abode….
Birdi! Where are your glasses?!
