I love my kids.
We have always strived for honesty and an open relationship with our girls. We want a home where they can feel safe to tell us anything.
I picked the girls up from the library program and they were begging to go swimming. I told them that they couldn't because I had an eye doctor appointment. They would get to go to Gran's.
That lead into them asking if I was getting glasses or contacts. I told them I didn't know if I would need anything, but if I did I would choose glasses. They asked if my eyes were bothering me and I said yes a little. They have been watering and when I read they feel tired.
To which Laney responded, "Well Mom, you are getting old. When you get old, you have to get glasses."
To which Madison responded, "Nah ah, wearing glasses doesn't mean she's getting old - it's all her gray hair. That means she's getting old."
I do love my kids.
