Mid-life motherhood

Mid-life motherhood has its own peculiar difficulties. In my forties I've got used to having to remove my glasses to read small print. Even with vari-focal lenses, I still have a problem unless they are a brand new prescription. But having to take off my glasses to be able to focus on my baby is ridiculous!

You just need smaller, narrow glasses so that you can peek out underneath them without removing them (she said, in a suspiciously knowing manner.)

Hmm! I have pretty small, narrow glasses, but obviously not narrow enough. When I try peeking under them, I go cross-eyed. Very cross-eyed!
