    Guess Who Got Glasses? Caleb! My Five Year Old

    It’s official. All three of my children are wearing glasses now. I just can’t believe it. I guess since I have 20/20 vision, I never thought that my children… wouldn’t! But I married a man in glasses and you know how genetics work.

    Yes, I just flat out blamed my husband for this. I am owning it. I went there. It’s published online forever. Don’t worry – he is used to it.

    I am a little nervous about whether or not it will change Caleb’s personality. He’s been much more careful these days. As a third child, Caleb was always the risk taker. The “jump and ask questions later” guy – and I LIKED that about him because I have two other kids who are truly risk-adverse. The world needs a little bit of both, right? The cautious and the cliff divers.

    I’m somewhere in between in case you are wondering. I cliff dive… but I always go second. πŸ™‚

    When the doctor said that Caleb needed glasses, something inside of me frowned. I didn’t want glasses on Caleb because I wanted Caleb to wake up running… not fumbling for sight. But it is what it is. This is our new normal, but we are all still adjusting.

    Here’s a look at all of us shopping for his new frames. I was trying to get him the craziest and wackiest styles and he…. just wanted to look like Liam. Boys will be boys.

    Do you have children that wear glasses? Are they as young as Caleb? How long did it take before they got completely used to the frames? Caleb keeps taking them off when he runs or lays down on the couch. We are trying to get him to understand that he has to keep the glasses on at all times. It’s hard for a 5-year-old (and his mom)! πŸ˜‰

    And while we are chatting, did you notice a personality change once your child put on frames? Am I overthinking this? Like I said, my other two were very passive to begin with, so it was never a concern for me. However, Caleb is a wild child and I am absolutely ok with this notion. I never want his light to dim.
