Jack's New Look

Well, it was inevitable. Given Kate's and my atrocious vision, our children apparently are genetically predisposed to have bad eyesight. We had hoped it would be awhile yet before Jack needed them but we have noticed him squinting quite a bit while watching TV the past couple of months.  I took him to the eye doctor and, sure enough, he is just like me--astigmatism and near-sighted, with the right eye worse than the left. For now, he does not need to wear them all the time, just at school and while watching TV. (Thankfully, not when he is playing or I don't think they would last long.)
Luckily, he was super excited to find out he needed glasses. He was counting down the days until they arrived and  (literally) bouncing off the walls today before we went and picked them up. Hopefully, this enthusiasm continues.

Amelie was a bit jealous, so she has been wearing sunglasses non-stop since Jack got his glasses.

Wow! He looks great, all Smart and Cool all at the same time!

Thanks! He is rather proud. (And most of the choices for little boys were rather "hip.")
