If there is one thing I have always hated seeing, It's kids with glasses.
I HATE IT. I automatically feel bad when I see this. Jimmy can attest to this because he had glasses at a young age, and when they were accidentally knocked off of his face playing basketball, I came un-glued. It didn't matter who you were..."You just knocked his glasses off"... Then it was ON.
I had glasses when I was in 5th and 6th grade. They were bi-focals. Yup, a *buttload* of fun. But they actually worked. After that, I didn't have to wear them anymore.
I was hoping that the history of my family, as far as eyes go, would go away as it did with me. I have perfect vision, and I am the only member of my immediate family with no glasses, contacts, etc.
But now, the pain of seeing this begins. The beautiful boy in this pic is my 6 year old son, Ethan. He has been having a lot of headaches recently, so we took him to the optometrist. He has his glasses and now the headaches are gone. He's far-sighted, so you know. He looks so good in them, yet I feel so bad for him. It almost makes me cry. Just because I have hated so much, to see children with bad eyes.
I'll get over it. And in my mind, and hopefully, he will too, just like I did.
I just hate the "in-between" parts.
