Miss J has your glasses again, mummy! – JD, 5
I’m a terrible. terrible glasses-wearer. I cannot see well without them – near or distance – and yet I hardly ever manage to keep them on my face.
I’m not ashamed of them – I even rather like how I look in them – but I am the woman who loses her keys every single day, who never knows where her bank card is and who misplaces her phone for days on end. After 15 years as a glasses wearer I’ve probably worn them for a matter of weeks in total, always wearing them for a few hours and then putting them down somewhere to gather dust or be stolen by Miss J and buried amongst her toys.
It’s getting to the point where I can’t see what’s in front of me and my left eye is worse at each exam. So tell me, how do you get your kids to wear their glasses, because clearly I need whipping into shape!
