Glasses {The Ordinary Moments}


I can see so far away now mummy…

It does not make my guilt any more guilty than it is already! Moo’s reaction to her glasses yesterday.

I have tried to make the process over to glasses as ordinary and simple as possible. I am lucky in the fact I wear glasses full time so she understands that to help her eyes get better she must do the same. The bonus for her is they may help and she may not need to wear them all the time in the future.


I cannot quite believe how small Moo’s glasses are, they look tiny against mine. I have gone down the route of similar ones so she is more likely to wear them! I was not intending them to actually match inside though! Again I want to keep it as ordinary as possible and if its easier for her to associate that mummy wears glasses like this then hopefully it will be an easier transition to them.


So far Moo has adjusted really well. One day in and we have had no comments about taking them off, or not wanting to wear them. I am so proud of her that she has just gone with the flow.

From now on this is going to be a very ordinary moment, me and my baby girl wearing glasses together. I was a little upset and guilty that she had to wear them at first but the comment she made once wearing them made everything seem better.

I am linking up with the lovely Katie at Mummy Daddy Me for her wonderful linky The Ordinary Moments

    Ah I bet she loves wearing them to be like you. Cherry likes to have everything the same as me, she even wants her hair dyed the same colour! x

      I think thats is part of it yes! She thinks she is like me now, I do think its been easier because I wear them too 🙂 x

    Wow they are seriously cool glasses! Sounds like she is doing amazingly well wearing them. I got glasses when i was about 8 and i was a terror with them 🙂

      Thank you! I think the process has been easier because I wear them, I dread to think what she would be like if no-one in the household wore them!

    They look so much cooler than my first pair of glasses. I was five, it was the 80’s, you can imagine what they looked like! I hope she keeps finding them easy to wear and fun to see everything again!

      Oh I was dreading the style of glasses! I remember when children had them when I was at school! I am so pleased, they have come along way since then!

    I think glasses have definitely got better for little ones since when I had them. I hope she gets used to them soon, and that they do indeed make her eyes better. x

      She keeps telling me they are making them better and she can see, so all is good! I was amazed at the choice to be honest 🙂

    I love her little glasses – very cool (and yours too!) There is so much choice now, and I rotate between a few different pairs which is nice. I often wonder if my kids will need glasses like me and how we will handle that but I think there are more cool glasses wearing role models out there now! #theordinarymoments

      Thank you! I agree with choice! I was amazed at how many there was! When I was 16 there was hardly any choice what-so-ever!
