Anyway, this is a trait where Trent and I are completely opposite. I even already wrote a post about it. But I proved myself yet again yesterday.
Catherine failed her eye exam at school and I took her in on Wednesday to the eye doctor. Yep, she needed glasses. Yep, her eyes were worse than Julianne's and she is a year younger than Julianne was when she first got glasses and I felt like a lousy mom for not noticing Julianne -- so now I felt even worse about not noticing Catherine needing glasses.
After the appointment we headed to Lenscrafters. Catherine was immediately drawn to this large, bulky red frame. I did not like them. It looked like she had an injury between her eyes. I suggested she try on every pair they had and see if she liked them better than the red ones. One after the other she said, "NO, I still like the red pair". Finally with only 2 or 3 left she put on a very simple frame -- silver with a hint of blue, rimless on the bottom and she smiled so big into the mirror. She turned and faced the technician who was helping us and he just said, "Wow, those look amazing on you. It makes your eyes so blue. It fits the shape of your head perfectly!"
I was so relieved. We got them, they had the lenses ready in an hour and I took her back to school. Julianne went to a birthday party after school so it was nearly 6:00 pm when we picked her up and the two girls saw eachother for the first time . . . and . . . they have the exact same pair of frames.
This is something that would NEVER have happened if Trent had been in charge. But to me . . . glasses are glasses, most look about the same (except for the bright red ones). So please don't feel bad if I don't notice something about you someday -- like new glasses, or a hair cut, or new tires on your car, or something else . . . I really can't help it. I have always been like this.
I justify it to myself that my brain is just too full of other
Don't worry. I will post pictures soon.
