Life Lessons from My 11-Year-Old…

Isn’t it odd how we think that our kiddos learn a lot from us, but really the truth is that we learn way more from them. I am so incredibly blessed to have 3 precious little people in my life that teach me so many life lessons every single day. My son actually taught me one yesterday…
My 11-year-old son failed his school eye exam last week and so we made an appointment at the eye doctor yesterday. Well, we did find out he is nearsighted and will need to wear glasses for lectures at school and really anytime that he’s having to look far away. I was worried hearing this news would make him upset and maybe even a little nervous since most of his friends don’t wear glasses.
I was oh so wrong. Talk about looking at the glass half full. My son excitedly picked out his glasses and didn’t have one negative thing to say. Instead he smiled from ear to ear and proclaimed that he couldn’t wait to show off his glasses to his friends who don’t wear glasses.
Once again my son helped me to realize how important it is to stay positive and always try to see the good in what life throws at you. He also showed me how fantastic and fun it can be to be a little different from your peers… and I LOVE that about him.
Now on another note, I am heading over to Coastal.com to snag him an additional pair of glasses because well, my kiddos tend to misplace and lose things pretty easily.
