In all honesty, Daddy has done the work thus far, following Gracie around, consistently and firmly telling her she MUST wear her glasses, putting her glasses back on her head, etc. By Sat. night,though, just before the twins' bedtimes, Daddy said, "She's killing me" (after he put the glasses back on her head for the "fortyleventh" time).
On Friday night, Daddy started the "glasses weekend" by putting them on Gracie and telling her that she couldn't go outside with Chance and Mommy unless she wore them. Gracie wailed and cried. Then it was Mommy's turn. Mommy put the glasses on Grace, then sat her on her kiddie car, which Mommy pushed so fast Gracie had to hold on with both hands (and couldn't pull the glasses off)--she wailed and screamed during the rides. Then Matt and Mindy (our neighbors) came out and distracted Gracie. On Sat. morning, we took Grace to get the glasses adjusted at the optician's office, then had brunch at Alex's diner (in Mt. Pleasant) where they sat in booster seats for the first time--see pictures!
We're still working on Sunday/today--she's still taking them off, and we're putting them back on. Repeat. repeat. repeat.
Friday night: glasses-wearing and goldfish-eating ("blub blub") with Nestle
Sat. afternoon, we went to the mall, where the kids rode on the mini merry-go-round. Gracie said "weeeeeeee" the entire time while Chance munched on a cookie.
