Ooooh so that's why she's so clumsy...

So Cali is like super clumsy and is forever falling and tripping over things that are right in front of her. Now I know she's always been one of those kids tumbling over somewhere but after she had her adenoids and tonsils removed and grommets put in that was supposed to help improve her balance, but she's still all over the place. So as I had recently gone for a well overdue eye test I thought I'd take the kids to their first eye test. I thought that if her eyes were fine then I'd take her doctors again as the ENT doctor did say to inform them if her clumsiness gets worse. 
...........
Both of them actually did really well in their tests and did exactly as they were told and the staff at Specsavers were brilliant and very child friendly. OK so somehow Cali managed to break that little plastic thing you cover your eye with before you read the letters. Now RD read the letters perfectly but I noticed Cali was reading the smaller letters perfectly and the larger letters wrong. So it wasn't a huge shock when the optician said that she was long sighted and would need glasses.
...........
So that explains why she's always falling over things right in front of her face, because she literally cant see them. Yet she can see things in the distance. So she got to pick out 2 pairs of glasses and I made sure I boosted her confidence and told her how beautiful she looked in them just in case anyone was horrible or made fun of her at school (because we all know how kids can be sometimes) I also told her dad to call and reassure her of how great she looked in her glasses.
...........
As a lot of my family wear glasses and are short sighted I was concerned she would wear glasses forever (because I know she likes to lose things so that could potentially get very expensive) but the opticians said as she's long sighted and young and the prescription is quite weak that there's a possibility that her eyesight can correct itself and told me to make sure she doesn't wear them all day as she only needs them like reading glasses, so basically just at school and when she does her homework here. 
...........
Also luckily she got on well with them
at school I think because they were Avengers glasses everyone thought they were cool.
