How can a child who has just received his first pair of contact lenses and can't BELIEVE the difference in his ability to SEE all that this wondrous world has to offer~how BLIND he must have been over these last couple of years and he can't imagine why he didn't realize how poor his eyesight was~how does this SAME child THINK he got his contact in his eyeball, even though there is NO. CHANGE. IN. VISION. WHATSOEVER...and go throughout the entire day not questioning if he did, in fact, manage to place the lens over his nearsighted orb, only to find out at the end of the day that, "Well, looky there...what is that crusty withered thing sitting on my bathroom counter? Huh. Looks like my brand new contact lens that I put in my eyeball this morning. Course it's all dried out. I guess I'll just throw it away."

And he did.

And I only screamed at him for a little while.

Then I left the house.

Then I came back in to scream again.

But I called it "discussing" that time.

Two very different things.

Holly said...

You put it SO ELOQUENTLY!! LOL!!
It's funny to hear Ben lecture the younger boys on appreciating money NOW that he actually has to pay HIS own bills!! "You guys don't KNOW how GOOD you've GOT it..." LOL!!

He deserves a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. So funny! Next year for me - glasses. Can't wait to see the distance, I mean difference.

Oh lasik. I love you.

Oh contacts. You are a pain in the butt.

Oh children. Oh children.

all I ever do is "discuss". So glad you do the same thing!

You can discuss with us anytime Lisa...then we can comment our own conclusions to your problems!

And Mimi, you know when we try to forget THEY just have a way of reminding us of our lovely and successful parenting skills.

After all...WE were SUPER MOMS! WHO invented THAT when I was trying to raise my children and WHERE are they now???
