What's Up with the Glasses?

Recently I took my grandgirls shopping and guess what they wanted to buy? They wanted to go straight to Claire's to buy some glasses. They don't NEED glasses that I know of but no matter, from that shopping trip until now, glasses are an important part of their day. If we go on a shopping excursion, they go hunting for their glasses. Tonight I could not stop laughing when the girls' mom emailed the picture you're seeing. My granddaughter proudly announced that she needed her glasses to check her email. Truthfully I don't think she has email either but you can see that she is very serious about her glasses and her email.

A lot has changed in the world and I guess the stigma of wearing glasses might be one of those things.

Please stop in and visit my new blog friend Keetha at The Eclectic Company. She is a teacher and today she learned that her school is closing. She could use some e-visits and words of kindness.


  1. This must be a "thing." My kids at school are always coming in with glasses on - - - as if they were just a part of their "fashion" statement. Oh yah, those kids don't NEED the glasses either.

    Now that is one FUNNY picture - - - just look are HUGE that lappy looks on your gran's lap!!!!!

  2. I remember my oldest wanting glasses when she didn't need them, now she does and wishes she didn't. Sigh..always the same.

  3. I have to tell you my grandson needs and wears glasses and he says they call him four eyes in 3rd grade - so I am going to show him this blog.


  4. A fashion statement I'm sure. Well at least they don't cost the earth - or do they have to br designer ones?

  5. Hi Cheryl! How funny! I wish I didn't need mine! lol Hope yuo are feeling better. Hmmm...I think I'll pass on white coffee! lol Happy week!...hugs...Debbie

  6. Oh wow, here I am wishing I didn't need glasses almost my whole life and kids now a days wish they had them as a fashion statement..lol

    It could be someone they admire wears glasses and they want to be just like them! :-)

  7. Hope you're having a nice week, don't forget to enter my Giveaway tomorrow!
