And the nominee is…

Recently, I had another reason to nominate myself for the “Mother of the Year” award.  It seems that these moments come all too often.

Earlier this summer, I decided I was going to get ALL the kids eye exams early so we would beat the back to school rush.  When I was scheduling, I found out that I, candidate for “Mother of the Year,”  have somehow failed to get #3’s eyes check.  EVER.

Somehow, she got to 8 1/2 years old without ever having an eye exam.

Somehow, she finished second grade having never had the STATE MANDATED kindergarten exam.

AND… she needs glasses.  She had been complaining, but I, her devoted mother, didn’t take her to the eye doctor.

Yep. Mother of the Year.

Today we picked up her new accessories.  She was SO excited… at first.

Now, she says her eyes hurt.

But she is pretty cute in them!

  1. Been there, done that too! I felt SO BAD when we finally got Josh glasses. His very first comment on the way out of the dr’s office was “WOW! You can even see INDIVIDUAL BLADES of grass!!!!!” He kept up a running commentary through the 40 miles home. Congrats to Sweet Chloe Grace! What a doll.
    LOVE you guys! XXXXXX
