Making things a little clearer
But I started to notice that she would read all sorts of big signs on the street and billboards, ask questions and seem to enjoy being able to tell what store we were in front of. And it sort of clicked that she only read large letters by choice, and would sit and "look" at books, but not really read them. Our insurance didn't cover a second exam, and if she did need glasses, it wouldn't cover them b/c of some crazy insurance thing. So we waited, and I tried to be easier on her about reading. She isn't nearsighted or farsighted, as it turns out, one eye is slightly nearsighted, and the other is slightly farsighted, so she has trouble focusing on small lettering. Which explains why she said it hurt to read. I'm not sure how much I'll have to remind her to use them - they're new and exciting right now, but once that wears off, how often will I have to ask, 'Where are your glasses?'
