Four eyes: still better than two

I just don't believe it.

The whole time the eye doctor was checking her, as it was becoming increasingly more and more obvious how badly she really needed to have glasses, I just kept thinking: how could i have missed this? Wasn't I paying attention? And, darn it, why did she have to get my genes?

And also… Please God, let this be nothing worse than a little bit of nearsightedness.

God, as always, is awesome. And Sroch is totally stoked about her brand-new glasses. As a special bonus from God, our insurance coverage actually covers them so that the glasses themselves were cheaper than the eye doctor!

three times I was speechless yesterday

1) Llama was being very kvetchy and grumpy, and I said to her, while stroking her cheek, "I think maybe you're just really tired."

And she answered:

"True that."

2) Sroch was happily laying out her clothes for the next morning, skipping merrily around, when she pranced over to me, handed me her uniform shirt and said:

"Mommy, please can you לגהץ (iron) this for me? Thank you!"

...and skipped away.

I mean, she asked so NICELY! And everything in me wanted to tell her - you want it ironed, YOU do it! Except I don't let her touch the iron. Hmm.

3) Reading the manuals for the children-sized gas masks. Sigh.
