Last week my oldest daughter, Addy, had an eye doctor appointment and they told us she was near sighted and needed glasses.
Right there in the doctor's office, I started to panic a little.
I had flashbacks of my younger self being told I needed glasses, and the torment that soon followed.
And wouldn't you know it, Addy was THRILLED!
She was SOOO excited to pick out her new glasses, (I told her she could have any pair she wanted), and she was even more excited to show them to her friends. She had no fear, no reservations, and no worry about what anyone else would think.
It's funny how, as a parent, we can sometimes worry too much for our kids, and start to throw our own junk in there when it really is just fine.
I'm glad Addy could teach me that.
