Payton loves to play with her jewelry, and lately I’ve been calling her Mrs. T because of all the jangles hanging around her neck. This morning when she was trying to fix one of her necklaces, she said, “I need my glasses, I can’t see.” Since sunglasses are the only glasses she owns, I got them for her. I just don’t think they’ll accomplish what she was expecting. I have a feeling she’s copying her Grandma Jane, who searches for her nearest pair of eyes when she can’t see.
