Elegant has been coming home with headaches after school nearly every day this year.
Anyone want to guess the cause of these headaches, which I just discovered two hours ago?
At first, I thought she was dehydrated by the end of the school day, so I was pushing liquids on her.
Then I wondered if she was having stress headaches to go along with her stress stomach aches.
Then I finally got smart and scheduled an eye appointment. It turns out that Elegant has convergence insufficiency. Her eye muscles are working too hard and are strained, or something like that.
We've ordered her glasses with some sort of fancy schmancy prisms in the lenses that will force her eye muscles to do whatever it is they're supposed to do.
She chose purple metallic frames that are somewhat European looking.
And so now all the residents of Jenworld will have glasses.
