Can you see my hands?

Catwoman to your response surprisingly no him falling out of the crib didn't kill the mood, however, we had to wait and make sure he was asleep.  I guess that was his way of saying "hey wait a miniute I like being the baby!"

I'm not sure if I mentioned this before but when Sweet Pea went in for her 4yr. check up they tested her vision and well she wasn't cooperating very well.  Anyway they told me unless she was going to pre-k to not to worry about it-well she's not going but I still wanted to know if she could see well or not so I made an appointment.  And I'm sure you guessed that today was the appointment.  Now I'll admit I was a little worried because they told me they would probably dialate her eyes and I knew it would sting but I couldn't see how they would do the drops. 

Well we get there and she's doing really well and cooperating with the nurse-thank goodness.  She's able to see the pictures in the mirror and answer her questions.  Then comes the eye drops-they had her close her eyes and then after they put a drop in the corner they slightly open her eye so it will seep in.  The first eye no problem, the second eye was when she was complaining that it burned.  But she was a little trooper and thankfully the pain went away fairly quickly.  The nurse gives us the option to either stay in the room or in the waiting room and Sweet Pea wants to stay in the room.  Oh and can you believe there were no magazines!  And of course I forgot to bring a book for me and her so we were both pretty bored but made do.  Then Sweet Pea comes up to me and says while holding her hand up "Mommy I can't see my hand!  Can you see my hand because I can't see it all?"  I couldn't help but laugh-I'm talking I was laughing so hard I had tears in my eyes.  I tell of course I can see her hand and the drops make your eyes see things kind of fuzzy.  But her face was priceless-her eyes were opened wide and trying to see them.  It was like she was tripping, and if you're wondering how I know it's because I wasn't always a good girl and partied a lot.  Then she would walk up to the wall almost touching it with her nose and say "Oooo Mommy the wall looks huge."  Just thinking about it is making me laugh, man do I wish y'all could have seen her face. 

Ok so the Dr. comes in and does a couple of tests and tells me that she's a little farsighted but doesn't need glasses.  He also to come back in a couple of years because her eyesight could improve.  Now I know I should of asked right then but how is that possible?  I really should of asked but she was sooo ready to leave and she had been really good.  Anyways I'm glad she doesn't need glasses but I thought it would be fun to pick some out-I guess I just wanted an excuse to go shopping.  Speaking of glasses I really need to get my eyes checked again, it's been a couple of years so I'm passed due.  *Mental Note-must make appt.*  Alright well talk to y'all later.

Hysterical! Glad she doesn't need glasses though! I would think four year olds wouldn't be very good about taking care of them, and they're expensive!!! :)

[...] please don’t take this the wrong way but only Catwoman commented on my Can You See My Hands? post.  Maybe y’all missed it and if so I really think y’all should read it because [...]

I thought I left a comment on this one. Actually, I know I did. Anyways, I thought it was really funny. I had to take the oldest to the doctor for headaches two weeks ago and he gave her an eye exam and says that I need to take her to an eye doctor, that she might need reading glasses. I thought "Geesh, she's only seven!" I hope I have a funny story like this one to share too!

I saw the glasses and skipped it thinking it might be something Potterish..

That's a riot..

Last night my oldest told my youngest she had a "schmohawk." LMAO!

That is just too funny! I would have been doubled over laughing at that comment. My oldest has horrible eyesight and has had glasses since a young age. He always plays with objects when they give him those drops moving them back and forth in front of his face and giggling to himself. Keeps him amused I guess while we wait!
