My Not So Baby: Teens and Contacts
Last week Monday my Baby turned 14. Where does time go. I remember when I was in high school in 9th grade and four years of high school felt like forever. I'm always sit back like where does time go?
For the last couple of years Michael asked for contacts. With him being in sports and me just being me. I was really worried if he would be responsible enough for them.
Earlier in February he broke his glasses. This is coming from a kid who would brake his glasses every couple of months. Since I purchased these glasses for him almost three years ago they only had to go in the shop once. Well technically twice if you count this time.
I was really hesitant about getting the contacts. He mentioned to me how his glasses make him look like a little kid. Even though his glasses are adult frames. I get him because I noticed the difference of how he looks with glasses and with contacts.
I set the appointment and the day came. I had to pick him up from school early which I try to avoid. He wasn't aware of the appointment so it was a complete shock to him.
He went in for his normal exam. In order for them to actually allow a child to leave with the contacts they have to take the contact last out and put them in. Boy I'm so thankful for how patient the obstetrician was. It took him some time but he got the daft of it and was able to leave with a trail pair after his fitting. I think he likes the idea of contacts but don't like the idea of having to take them out. Overall, he loves that he has this option.
Do you wear glasses and/or contacts?
