The Eye Dentist

Dear K:

This morning was a sweet experience with you. It was the first official day of summer vacation.

It began when I swept you out of bed, completely garbed in your Moana costume, of course.  We dashed out to the car and hurried to the eye doctor.

I thought it was funny when they kept saying we were early because I was certain we were a bit late.

I kept telling you as I filled out the paper work. They're going to check your eyes and play a game where you have to figure out what things are.  You'll love it!

They took S back and we followed behind and watched as they did tests games with her and then they did them with you. You felt so grown up doing the same things as S. Let's admit that almost everything S does is done with a smile looks and sounds fun because of her catchy enthusiasm.

Then we went into the dark room for the test.  You watched carefully as S was tested on which letters she could see and there was a huge grin on your face the entire time.

Then, oh joy, it was your turn.  Let the games begin!

"What do you see?" Dr. Adams asked.

"A duck."
"A horse."
"A house."
"A hand."
"A cake."

Big grins beaming from your face.  You got every answer correct.  You wanted to hold the pirate patch with a handle.  You wanted to see the reflecting thing.

"Good." "Yes, that's right." The doctor replied.

"Does the horse of something on him?"
"A guy," you answered.
"Are there candles on the cake?"
"Yes," you affirmed.

She swept through all the questions and then Dr. Adams said, "You're all done. You and your sister have perfect vision."

Hip, hip, hooray!

We drove off to get some breakfast. I looked down at the clock. It gleamed a bright 9:47.  Our appointment was supposed to be at 9:30 and we'd accidentally come at 8:30.  They didn't say a word other than, "You're a bit early" and fit us right in.  So nice!

Then K,  you said with delight and glee, "Let's go again!"

You've talked to me about it several times today and tonight you exclaimed with determination, "We need to go see the eye dentist again."

I am so proud of you, sweet girl!  I love you so much!!
