Blogging about life in Minnesota, raising our six kids with Down syndrome while battling Breast Cancer.

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor in the morning the devil says, "Oh shit! She's up!"

Last week, just in time for her birthday, Angela got new glasses. We usually get two pair at the same time. Very different looking (girl's gotta have options you know!) so she always has a spare. She was busy trying them on when I was instructed I should be taking pictures! We go to Glasses Menagerie in Minneapolis and they are so good to us there. Angela's face is very difficult to fit. Not only are her features very small, but throw in DS and the measurements are just not like typical kids. From her eye to ear is very short, and then where the center of her pupil...well it's just wonky.

So anyway, I did as I was told and took pictures.

Then Travis, the technician who always helps us, showed her they were transition lenses. She was SO EXCITED! (And when Angela gets excited she gets even louder than usual.) Asher has transitions and she's been a bit jealous of them.
