Yesterday, for the first time, I realised that my daughter cannot read from afar as much as I can when we were at a bus stop and she couldn't read the number on the bus that was approaching, while I could. She claims she can see the board in class fine, but I have a feeling she is saying this to avoid the optometrist. I am taking her word also because of the same reason.
Why is it that wearing spectacles is such a big deal with us?

LG, I don't know why it's such a big deal, but I think you should consider getting her checked out. School gets more difficult and important with each matriculation.

I can still remember the day that my parents caught me out not being able to read the clock from across the room. Since that time (age 10) my glasses and I have been constant companions. First thing on in the morning, last thing off at night. The change to "progressive" lenses was a little depressing, though, I have to admit.

The Beloved needs her glasses all the time, too, but won't wear them. She looks great in her glasses, but she can't get over the hump.

I don't get it. I think most women look great in glasses. I think it conveys confidence to wear them, but maybe that's a viewer-versus-viewee thing.
