Taking Hits From the Peanut Gallery
Mallory's reaction: "Creepy"
Riley expressed similar sentiments when I later picked her up. And I thought "what a tough crowd."
The next day, I wore them in a store, and it hit me, "I am a person who wears glasses now." Wearing readers was just stepping into it halfway, this is full on new territory.
It is settling in. There are a multitude of physical happenings in my body right now and a lot of acceptance that is settling in.
I did pause it and show it to the peanut gallery. Although they really don't know who Jennifer is. That is okay.
Momma has new glasses and I like them. I don't need Jennifer Anniston to have a very similar pair but it doesn't hurt as I am learning to accept the inevitable changes that are occurring. The kids need time for acceptance just like I do but I did have to teach them to say it in a nicer way. Mothers have feelings too!
