New Glasses

I picked up my new glasses today. I sort of got them on a whim. I went in to pick up Sean's contacts yesterday and figured, while I am here..... I have been talking about new ones for a while anyways. I had my old ones for 3 years, so I figured I was due for an update.
I have been wearing glasses since I was 8. I am trying to think of words to best describe my feelings about glasses. I guess you can say its taken a long long time to be comfy with wearing glasses. They were always a source of teasing when I was a kid. I always had to be so careful with them. My parents couldn't really afford to replace them. I remember taking a rock to the lense once and a knee to the face and them getting bent. Also a friend busted a pair once. I never got to choose my glasses and they were always ugly. One year I had a growth spurt and my glasses didn't. Then there were the years when the things were so huge my cheeks could see too! I was the girl with frizzy hair and glasses and then the girl with glasses and braces. Finally when I was 17 I was allowed contacts! That really boosted my self-confidence. If it were up to me I would have gotten them sooner, but I wasn't paying for them so. Around the time I was pregnant with Kylie I stopped regularly wearing the contacts and after I had her I had a hard time wearing them all the time. I still have a hard time wearing them for a long time.
Keira picked herself out a pair of pretty princess frames yesterday. She doesn't need glasses and insists that she does. She really, really does! No, you really really don't. You don't want glasses Keira. All the while, trying not to give them a negative stigma in case one day she does. But there seem to be such cute frames out there now.
So you will have to check back in a day or so when I post a pic of my face in my new glasses. The girls like them. They keep feeling the flowers on the side. I picked them out without a second opinion which is a big deal to me. Like a good husband he is, Sean says he likes them. He sort of has too, they are paid for now! LOL!
