There are so many things that can make daily life a hassle, at least for me. Glasses are one of them. When I was 16, I started wearing contact lenses. I am now 36 and couldn’t live without them. When I do have to wear my glasses, for whatever reason, it’s a thorn in my side. The only convenience is that I can put them on and take them off at any time. I don’t have to think about rubbing my eyes etc. Acuvue Oasys has been a life saver for me.
Royal, my 12 year old, has been wearing glasses for a few years. He has already broken 3 pair. He’s a boy who does boy things so, it’s was inevitable that it would happen. He has always watched me put mine in. The most common thing I hear from him, and many others is, “I could never stick my finger in my eye.” I always laugh at this because you are not actually touching your eye. He has recently started wearing contact lenses and he loves them. He still wears his glasses off and on but, he laughs about how easy they are to put in now.

Tomorrow is Royal’s first day as a 5th grader. I am feeling kind of old. Right, because 34 is so old? My Mom would slap me if she was here for even suggesting it. He is very excited to be “The Big Kid On Campus” this year. I hope he enjoys is because next year he switches schools and will be the low man on the totem pole. Where did the past 10 years go?
Spencer, my baby, not so baby anymore. He is a Kindergartener come Monday morning. I am so excited for him. I will not cry, I will not cry. Oh hell, who am I kidding. Sure I will! But, I will wait until after I drop him off to ball like a baby….. or try. What makes me happy and sad at the same time is, no more diapers, no more bottles, no more 2 a.m. feedings. My baby days are over! Yes, I love babies but, I wouldn’t want to start all over again. I have 2 and John has 2 so, I think potentially having 4 kids is quite enough for me
We had open house today and their teachers both seem really great. Royal had the most amazing teacher for 4th grade so they have some pretty big shoes to fill. People keep asking me, “What will you do with all that free time?” Yea right, like I have free time? Oh wait, I forgot, I just sit at home and play on the computer all day…. Don’t we all?? That reminds me, I am out of BonBons. read the rest of this entry »
One of my dear friends had a baby about a week ago. Her oldest is almost 13 so it has been quite some time since there was a baby in the house. I love watching her Facebook feed go by to see what has been happening. Some of the things she posts are so funny to me, of course it is because it’s not me and I remember those times! It has been many years since there was a baby in my home. (but who knows, I am still young enough!) This morning, I saw this one on her wall::
I couldn’t really do anything except laugh. It always seems to work out like that doesn’t it? After reading this I remembered a funny memory about when my oldest son was born. His father was so proud and wanted to change the very first diaper. Hey great, have at it, one less I have to change. (After 30 hours of labor, I wasn’t at all unhappy to just rest.) I wonder how many of you are laughing right now because you remember what that diaper was like. If you haven’t had the pleasure of this encounter, consider yourself blessed… In short, it is pretty much like tar. Kind of nasty huh? After about 8 wipes later, watery eyes and red face from the smell, he handed the duties over to me. Kudos to him for trying but clearly it was a job for Super Mom.
