I made up a BINGO card, with each square being a common experience for parents of young children in glasses. Do you have a bingo (5 in a row, up and down, across, diagonal, or all four corners)? What other experiences should I have added?
I loved this idea that was shared by Lisa – it combines some of my favorite things: books, libraries, and kids telling their own story.

One of the most common things I hear from parents whose child has just gotten glasses is that they’re surprised by the intensity of their emotions, and often they feel bad for feeling bad. I know I was filled with worry and was a bit upset, but more than anything felt guilty for feeling upset.
