really irritated...

My 9yo dd wears reading glasses. She just came out of her room and wanted to sit on the couch and read with me. I asked where her glasses were. she said she didn't know, and had no idea how long they've been missing because she didn't bother to tell me they were gone. What the hell?! We are really tight on money, and I stressed to her how important it is that she NOT lose then because I can't afford another pair and her ass hole father, who makes way more than dh and I, won't pay for them. So now she's in her room sobbing and wailing like I've beaten her, because i'm making her clean the whole room, top to bottom, until they are found. I need a freaking drink.

I am also irritated!! My four year old started wearing glasses in November. He lost one pair at school, and two pairs broke. The eyeglasses he has now is his fourth pair... since November!!

I started wearing glasses when I was ten and have never lost or broke a pair of glasses. My oldest sons have been wearing glasses since they were ten and also have never broke or lost a pair of glasses. This preschooler in eyeglasses situation is very frustrating for me!!

Wow! I'm so sorry! My almost three yr old as worn them since 15 mos. old. After about two months of fussing with us , he realized he could see the wall before smacking into it and has now asks for them in the morning. Not to say we haven't been through a couple of pairs due to his roughhousing. But it is never ever because he doesn't wear them. Right now, he's got band aids on an arm that broke and on a spot

His appt is Monday and he's been wearing them like that for a month and a half. We figured there was no reason to replace them with money we didn't have if the perscription was to change.

I'm sorry she doesn't " get" the idea of how much glasses, cost. That's a lesson that they all have to brutally learn. ...at three, eight, twelve, or 16!

I'm sorry! I wish you good luck in finding them.

 sometimes local walmarts will fix glasses, the frame part like the arm for free,

 My daughter misplaces hers all the time.  I've learned not to freak out about it.  They always turn up.

My son has worn them for 3 years. Surprisingly enough he's never lost them but he only wears them for reading so he keeps them in his back pack at school.
