I took my son in to see the eye doctor cause I noticed after he was standing to close to the tv his one eye would cross. So we go and at first the doc thinks oh it's nothing but after dialtation and a tough exam he is farsighted and does have a crossed eye. :( I don't want his eye to be mad fun of when he is a kid (older). I wanted my lil baby to have good eye sight. I was worried he would have astigmatisim like me (I didn't find out until I was pregnant with him 25yrs old). Now I just can watch it to see if something happens if not he is good and we can go for glasses later. If something does happen we take it from there. But there is part of me that feels sad. The doc was like hopefully if things go right he will not need surgey (I sure hope that I don't have to go through something like that). I know there is nothing I could have done to prevent it cause I did everything I was suppose to during pregnancy just sad to know my little man has a eye problem.

I am thankful it is not worse or anything like that .... just hurts a bit.These little medical things make me feel like I did something to make him not perfect. I guess a blow to my self esteem. I don't want him to grow up and be picked on for being different (like I was)....and on top of this I lost that dang ol sippy cup. I have 3 others but still *sad sigh*..:(

I sorry. Just getting your feeling out helps. I know my little girl , well  my 13 year old just was diagnosed with depression. It was brought on by hormones and the fact that she is just 13 and in the 7th grade. That is a hard year for a teen. It was a very hard year for me too. You just want to protect them. You dont want them to go through the pain and the suffering that you did. But, since you know all about it you can help your boy. Just like I can help my girl. Plus there is so much that doctors can do for kids now. Good luck and hope you find the sippy cup.

Something about it got me thinking it might not be as bad. Like I have astigmatisim and Indont always wear my glasses and okay. Of course I will get his glasses but something tells me it is not that deep. something in my gut is telling me and my gut hasn't failed me yet.  13 and in 7th gradehmmm  what about home schooling?
