Missed - One day of school already!
Oh my, I guess we're not off to a great start. Tess missed her first day of school today. She had an eye appt. this morning just after 10:00 and I didn't feel like checking her out of school an hour after she started so I just kept her home.
We went to her eye appt., and it didn't even occur to me that they would need to dialate her eyes. I don't know why but I'm quite certain in all of my years of wearing glasses and eye exams I don't think I've even been dialated. So she has her eye exam done and sure enough she near sighted - or is it far sighted? I can never remember. She has the opposite problem that I do. She has a hard time focusing on reading her books, working on the computer, writing, etc. That actually explains a lot as to why she will pick up a book, get frustrated after a few minutes of reading and give up.
She thinks she looks pretty cool right now with her eyes all dialated. She looks like an alien! It was early out Monday today so I decided there was no point in taking her to school to be miserable for an hour. So my alien missed her first day of school....already! EEEK!
So we're off to Costco tonight to pick out some frames for her. She's pretty excited. I just hope the excitement lasts!
