This afternoon I will take Alexander to UCLA. As Dr. Rosenbaum had promised before he passed, nine is the right age to start wearing contact lenses. Today Alexander will be fit for them. Next week we will pick up his lenses.
I am so incredibly sad, and it makes little sense. This is a wonderful moment for my son, he’ll no longer be the redhead with glasses. Quite an unusual sight at just four months old.
I like being the mom of the little boy with the red hair and glasses. I like looking at him through his lenses, it’s all we’ve known. It’s the way I see him.
I’ll make this a wonderful day for myself as well. I won’t let Alexander see that I’m not as excited as he is.
