Gabrielle loves to play with my glasses. She doesn’t break them, but she does stretch them out. I remember being little and only having glasses and not having contacts, and I lost them and had to spend all day trying to find them. I remember my mom being upset because obviously I can’t see without them. I also remember being in elementary school and leaving them at my grandma’s house because I was sleepy, and my mom took me home and I didn’t have them. I still went to school without them but I couldn’t see anything. It was a difficult situation because I couldn’t write, I couldn’t read, I couldn’t participate in class and I think I was in fourth grade.
I think I’m going to have to get used to not reaching for my glasses at the end table at night time to put them on to go somewhere.
