"I can show you the world...

Monday, November 8, 2010

shining, shimmering, splendid!  Tell me princess, now why did you only just put me on your face?  I can open your eyes.  Take you wonder by wonder.  Over sideways and under on a magic carpet ride!"  This is the song I sang to L. the whole way home from LensCrafters after she got her first pair of glasses.  The song was supposed to be the glasses singing to her.  I changed a few lyrics.  Sure, some of the syllables have to be rushed through, but whatever.  It makes total sense.

Anyway, she was thrilled.  Putting them on, off, on, off: "I can read the sign.  I can't read the sign.  I can see the clock.  I can't see the clock."  There was a lot of that happening.  She no longer has to sit with her nose glued to the television screen to watch a show.  She can see all the various lumps and bumps in her yogurt (a new discovery that doesn't have me particularly thrilled.  She is a food-investigator.).  She'll read the blackboard without scooting her chair close.  She can see the outlining of leaves on the trees and each one of Gracie's single hairs.  It's a whole new world!  And that is why I sang the song.

  3. She looks ADORABLE in them! Really, they look great on her! I remeber when I got glasses for the first time around age 8 or 9 - I had TERRIBLE vision and my parents didn't even know it, but after I got those glasses, it really WAS a WHOLE NEW WORLD!!
