It’s a whole new look

So Last Monday Oliver went to the Eye Dr… I don’t know quite what I expected - I think to go in, have a chat and then come out with all my fears allayed… It was not the case - we were in there for over two hours to be told at the end of it that Oliver has Accomadative Estropia. This means he has far-sighted and so his eyes strain hard to compensate and correct his vision. In doing so, one eye drifts inward when he is tired or concentrating very hard. By the end of our appointment, my son had glasses.

So a few things - first relief that we found the issue, we are getting it corrected. The good news is too, he will probably grow out of them… But of course - there is also some sadness. My perfect boy looks different now. It’s something to get used to….

I was so worried we would have to battle him to wear them but he has been a complete trooper. Puts them on every day, no drama. But aye aye aye - he looks so grown up!

First pro haircut

Lola had her first haircut today - well her first professional haircut. I can’t say she was overly excited by the whole proceedings, but she did sit still….

Halloween this year was spent at Charlie’s house. This witch costume was about the third the kids had experimented with before finally deciding that for the big night, they had to be something scary. So we went over and charged around the walk streets of Venice trying to scare everyone witless, well maybe not… I was a flapper - pure laziness on my part, and Steven donned a suit. Every year I kind of get paralyzed by indecision over what to hear and end of with something very lame. Charlie’s Dad Andrew stole the show with a serial killer slash grave digger combo outfit. Yikes!

This year it is definitely sinking in with the kids though. Thankfully the Halloween Fairy took care of most of the candy so no-one got too out of control and there was even a special surpise in the morning to combat the post-sugarfest withdrawls.
