What once was lost has now been found.

Somehow yesterday during one of their many outings in the stroller, Zelda lost her glasses. She wears little pink plastic eyeglasses with thick coke bottle lenses. When we look through them all one sees is a blur. We are hoping that they at least help her to see something/anything. Last summer while in California, Dr Shihady at the Center for the Partially Sighted guessed at a prescription and since then, we have tried to convince Zelda that she should wear her little glasses. She has just recently started to pay attention. Who knows if they actually do anything but she sure looks cute.

But then yesterday, she lost them. I am sure that she was getting pissy during an afternoon stroll and whipped them off of her head and dropped them on the ground. Candi was frantic and rewalked the route twice. Then Evan and I took out the kids before bedtime and searched the neighborhood. The glasses are not cheap and anyone finding them would realize they're not your ordinary little spectacles. We went to bed defeated and frustrated.

Today Candi rewalked the route in our brand spankin' new jogging stroller and she found the glasses. Someone had picked them up off the ground and set them on a post on the corner of Eva and Monroe. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
