Rose Colored Glasses

Claire got new glasses!

Her eyes keep getting better, which is great news!  …almost as good as the news that we can go back to having exams only once a year now!  😉

This time, she chose glasses that just happen to match our roses…

Coincidence?

 

Granny, is that you?

The other day, Claire was reading one of the books from my childhood.  I have a bunch of books from the past, and they’ve seen better days.  We try to be careful with them, and I won’t let her play with the ones that are literally disintegrating.

But, this one isn’t too bad.

The Animal Show is one of her favorite books.

Claire says…

“Look, Momma!  They have your glasses!  It’s your glasses!”

*gasp*

So they are!  (It’s hard to tell by the angle that they’re sitting on the book, but they look almost identical to Grandmother Grundy’s!)

Part of me is taken aback.  I guess everything old is new again!  Or, maybe I’m just old!  Or, maybe…maybe Granny’s got style!  😉
