Lucy got glasses.
Her siblings were so darn excited about it that I thought maybe she may fall in love with those things.

But alas, the magic has worn off. It’s tough to sweet-talk those suckers onto that cute face of hers.And tough to get a good picture too.

But you get the idea.

I do think she looks pretty cute when she wears them.

  1. I think they're adorable and they are the perfect fit, color and frame for her sweet face.
    Pretty soon she'll forget they are even there, she'll be so used to wearing them.

  2. she looks adorable in them! You picked a great pair–you will LOVE the plastic frames. Believe me–I have 3 little ones in glasses (a 6, 4, and 3 year old). One of them got his first pair at 19 months so we have been through a lot of glasses! In my opinion, the plastic frames hold up SO SO much better. The ones with the little nose pieces always get tweaked and need to be adjusted and they just aren't as durable.
    I love your blog by the way. I loved your book and I am a huge fan of all your parent's books and hearing them speak. I have four little ones ages 6 and under and I always feel uplifted when I read your blog and love the reminder that what I am doing matters!
    As far as trying to get Lucy to WANT to wear her glasses—reinforce it to her telling her all the time when her glasses are on of how much better she can see (soon she will notice that and that will be the first thing she grabs in the morning when she wakes up).
    also, with my stubborn child I made a "glasses box" that was decorated with pics of glasses all over it and pics of kids in glasses. Inside were little simple treats, small toys, stickers, play-doh. We used that as bribery for the first little bit (when they do a good job wearing their glasses for a bit, they get to pick something out).
    hope this helps!

  3. When my daughter got her glasses in 2nd grade I mentioned to her teacher that my daughter was afraid of being teased. That sweet teacher wore her glasses ( instead of contacts) every day the first week, in a show of support. Of course the kids noticed and asked the teacher about her glasses. She told the class they gave her super power and helped her see really well. My daughter proudly wore her glasses after that and everyone thought she was so lucky. Point of the story being…maybe you could tell Lucy that her glasses give her super power to see better. And if you or your husband wear contacts,try wearing your glasses for a while.

  4. I had the same concern when my daughter started wearing glasses. Soon enough, she was hooked. It turns out that once they get used to being able to see clearly, it's really annoying to look at everything blurry. She is so cute in them!

  5. You don't know me, so don't think TOO hard about trying to remember or recognize the name. I was just wondering if you know how your daughter, Elle, made the personalized header at the top of her blog? Did she use a specific program such as Picasa? -Kaici
