Non-quote Quote of the Day

My wife walks into her optometrist’s office. This is not a dirty joke.

My wife says nothing.

Receptionist: “Good afternoon. How can we…”

My wife holds up her eyeglasses, one piece in each hand.

Receptionist: “Say no more. How old is your child?”

    No the dirty joke would have a different specialized physician (there are a number to choose from).

    My girls have not broken mine but they sure have bent it out of shape. It took over an hour to get my glasses properly fitted and after they got bent they never did get it just right. I have gone back but after a month of trying I don’t think they will ever fit right.

    I recently purchased new frames because my 20-month-old broke mine in pieces.

    I have been fortunate so far…my son wasn’t ever really interested. But our daughter loves to grab my glasses. It is only a matter of time…she’s getting stronger and faster everyday.

    I should add that we’ve also gone through three pairs of his sister’s sunglasses.

    I will probably be doing this soon. My daughter likes to wear my glasses and I always seem to forget them on the bedside table when I get up and put in my contacts.

    250 dollar prescription sunglasses+toddler= one-templed 250 dollar prespcription sunglasses.

    I feel her pain.

    Oh no! We’re lucky no one in our house wears glasses (yet). We can’t seem to keep a flashlight in working order (hard tile floors and unreliable toddler hands, wince), but that’s a much less expensive problem to have…

    I had to have the earpieces on my glasses replaced too…but it was because of the dog, not a child! (I loved being able to say “The dog ate my glasses.”)
