The be completely honest, it took us a couple weeks after getting Natalie's prescription to get to an optical center. I was doing a little research before taking her in, but for the most part, time just got away from us. We ended up getting a Hello Kitty pair. We figure if it makes Natalie more excited and comfortable about wearing them, it's worth passing up the cheapest frames.
Her glasses came in very quickly after we ordered them. I had expected to wait probably a week longer than we did. I dragged the three kids to go pick them up, and Emmy kept herself entertained by putting stickers all over herself.
And so we begin this new phase of life. She is supposed to wear them all the time, but that's hard for her to do right now. We are easing into things. I have to remind her to put them on a lot, but I don't insist that she wear them every second. Thankfully, she has never refused to put them on or acted really embarrassed about them.
Today was her first day wearing them to school. They came home in one piece, so that's a start!
