Inside: Are you on the hunt for stylish and affordable eyeglasses for kids (and for you!) that they’ll love? Look no further! I have all the deets on where to find the hottest brands for an affordable price.
I’ll never forget the day we found out my youngest needed glasses. I felt like the worst parent ever because he had *kind of* mentioned a time or two that he couldn’t see very well. When I say kind of, I mean I was most likely busy doing something else and my mind wasn’t laser focused on what he was saying.
I was *kind of* listening.
Basically, he needed glasses and a much needed (and much overdue) eye appointment proved it. I won’t even get into the story of how we found out he is oh so color-blind. It all started in a parking lot when he was frustrated that we weren’t seeing the red car he was talking about. (It was green.) Oh wait, I said I wasn’t going to go there.
We’re now going on about four years of him wearing glasses. And in those four years, he’s needed more than four pairs of glasses. Why? Because he’s a very active boy who can sometimes break things. Things like bikes and skateboards and phones and yes, eyeglasses.
The saga with his latest pair has resulted in him wearing broken glasses for several weeks. He broke them falling out of a hammock tied quite high in a tree. True story.
Can you relate?
Do you have an active child who wears glasses and is prone to breaking things?
Do we need to start a ‘moms whose kids break things’ support group? I’ll head it up.
Needless to say, we’ve learned over the years that expensive + glasses for our now 13-year-old do not go well together. We need and want affordable. He needs and wants stylish. Needs stylish? Yes, because…#image.
But really, in all seriousness, his eyeglasses are something he wears every.single.day. No breaks. No days off. They’re essential and I don’t blame him for wanting to feel like he looks good in them.
I’ve also started wearing glasses for reading and working, and I won’t even tell you how long it took me to pick them out. 😉
So, where does one find these stylish, affordable eyeglasses I’m talking about?

I’m wearing a pair of Cover Girl glasses from JCPenney Optical and I love them!
