Brielle my little actor!!!

So on Saturday morning Brielle tells me that her eyes are burning and that everything is blurring and she cant see anything..so at first IM thinking pink eye or something but then I look and they don’t look very pink..so I go to hold up a couple of fingers and ask her how many fingers I am holding up and she says three when there really are two…and then I do it again and she gets it wrong…so then I have Jared do it and she gets it wrong again…so then I start to panic a little..asking her did she hit her head or something..im thinking something internally is going on…I become panicky over it all and debating whether or not I should take her in the ER bc something is majorly going on….but Jared says that I should just wait and see what happens.. so I do…I ask her a couple times over the weekend if she was just making it up bc she wanted glasses and she looks at me directly and says she's not and she don’t want them..so I believe her..so all day Sunday she complains that her eyes are burning and everything is still fuzzy…so I get her to the dr on Monday right away in the morning and we go in the eye dr and the nurse has her read the letters and no kidding you would of thought she was blind…so I really start to panic and Im thinking I know you cant loose your sight over night but what in the world happened ….I m still thinking that it might be something internally  going on… and really start to pray right about now so then the dr comes in and plays around with all the different lenses and really checks out her eyes…and then looks at me and says that she is borderline nearsightness and that she would be his number one pick if he needed someone to tell a story!!!!  WHAT???!!!!!!!  You are telling me she made the whole thing up!!!  You can just about see the steam rolling out of my ears right about now bc I feel so dumb/embarrassed now and also I am sooooo mad right now!!!!  So on the way home she still don’t know that I know that she made the whole thing up so I ask her again so are you sure you don’t just want glasses and once again she says that she don’t want them…so then I ask her how come the dr said that you don’t need them..I don’t know she says…So I gave her her chance to explain right????!!!  Finally I told her she can either have this talk with me or we will wait until your dad comes home and then we will talk about this…so she started talking right away..she mumbles under her breath that she made the whole thing up….ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!!!!!   I cant believe that my little first grader would do this…Kids I tell ya they sure do put you through the ringer sometimes!!!! {this happened a couple of weeks ago but just getting around to writing about it}

Ohh, isn't that so frustrating-I had a seven yr. old do that-one time he was crying and faked so well that he had something in his eye and we took him to the ER-they didn't find anything!!

O my goodness! That is so crazy!! I always wanted glasses or braces growing up, but didn't end up with either.

HAHAHAHAHA. That is a great story!!

Oh my! I wonder if she just meant to play a little game to start with and then her story snowballed and kept going and she didn't know how to stop; like she felt she had to keep going. But my goodness I can just imagine how upset you were after worrying and getting her to the dr only for her to finally admit she made it up!

Your girls are all adorable by the way!

My daughter did the same thing in second grade. The dr. did the exam/eye chart and said she was completely blind by her answers. He knew how to trick her but preserve her dignity. He told her her vision was terrible but she was lucky because he was going to put drops in her eyes that would cure her by morning. Lo and behold, the cure worked. We still laugh about it years later.

Haha This will be a great story to tell once she's older:) Sounds like my step-daughter/my little drama queen! It's funny the things kids want just because other kids have it...
I remember being younger and wanting BRACES on my teeth soooo bad...then once I got them, they were no fun!
