Last night she spent the night with a friend. When I picked up my phone around lunchtime today to call and see if she was ready to come home, I had 2 voicemails from her. In the first one she was asking if I was taking her to get her eyes checked today and if I would also take Chloe. The second message was a desperate plea for glasses....again...because she said "she couldn't even walk around because she had hurt her foot on a rock because she couldn't see what it was on the ground".
This child has been acting like a blind person for several days. So off we go to the eye doctor. When she told the doctor that she could barely read the largest letter on the chart, I caught myself from laughing out loud because she had just been playing hopscotch on the tiles in the waiting room...which I don't think she would've been able to see if she couldn't see an E about a foot tall. After some checking, getting funny looks from the eye doctor, and dilating her eyes to get a more accurate reading, we determined that, in fact, her eyesight is 100% perfect. That's always a great thing to hear but Taryn was not pleased! I'm quite sure that good news totally ruined her day.
|She got plenty of drama from having her eyes dilated though so no worries.|
A girl at school got new glasses and apparently Taryn and Chloe really love them. So, the scheme began. I guess it's good to know that whatever Taryn is doing she pours her whole heart into it. There is no 1/2 way with her.
There is never a shortage of drama in this house. :) I wouldn't want it any other way!
