Coke bottle glasses.
These were the names I heard in 3rd grade when I got my first pair of glasses.
When my oldest, Karl, was told he needed glasses, I cringed inside. I didn’t want him to go through what I did. Sadly, Karl did. He heard the same names as I did.
When my youngest was told he needed glasses, I wanted to scream, “It’s not fair!”, while stamping my feet. Andrew, on the other hand, was excited! You see by this time glasses had become trendy. They were a stylish accessory. He couldn’t wait!
He ran to the display, searching for a pair that was as bold as he. He found a few. I couldn’t resist, I brought him two pairs. When we picked them up, he bebopped all the way home.
He. Was. Proud.
Since then we’ve brought countless glasses, for him, for Karl,and for me. I used to spend a pretty penny on glasses. The boys had such a bad habit of losing or breaking their glasses. It used to drive me batty! Thankfully, Karl has outgrown this. I’m still waiting for Andrew. Last year alone he had four pairs! YIKES!
This year will be different, not because he’s matured, but because we went to Lenscrafters. They were fabulous! They made him feel comfortable and explained every single step of the process. Here he is getting fitted for his new glasses.
But my truly favorite part…
Lenscrafters is having a 50% semi-annual sale.
What is the Lens-Annual Lens Event you ask?
Its a Lenscrafters sale that gives consumers who buy a complete pair of glasses (meaning optical or sunglasses made with prescription lenses) 50% off the price of their lenses, until September 12th.
Even better, Lenscrafters also offers insurance, for an additional fee of course. This means that if he loses or breaks the glasses I can get another pair FREE! Woot!
Now that’s what I call Latinalicious!
