P started wearing glasses last June, because she had an astigmatism. In January, I took her to her 6 month checkup, and she was a tad upset that she didn't leave the Doctor's office with a patch for her 'good' eye. (The doctor previously told her that if the crazy eye wasn't better, he would patch the good eye, to force her to use the crazy eye.) She wanted to be a pirate SO bad.
Today, I took her to her 3rd checkup in a year. She had to get her eyes dilated so they could test her eyes. After the test, the doctor announced that her astigmatism is practically corrected, and she no longer needs to wear glasses. I did admit to the doctor that she hasn't worn glasses in over a week. One pair became a casualty, another pair was lost at the 4th of July celebration, and the last pair was lost the second day we were in Greece. Call me a bad mother, but I TOTALLY forgot what happens when your eyes are dilated, and I took P to school right before lunch.
After class this evening, I picked P up from my friend's house, and while walking to the car, we had a conversation:
Me: How was school?
P: It was ok, I had a good day.
P: There was one problem.
Me: What happened?
P: I couldn't see my hands for a long time today.
P: I held it like this and I couldn't see it. **opening hand in front of her face**
At that point, I remembered what happens when your eyes are dilated. She went on to inform me that she 'started seeing them again' after nap time. I think I may have lost a few Mommy points today, but I could afford it, because I DID take her to Greece.
