She had a screw loose

This morning when I went to put Belle's patch onto her glasses I noticed they weren't quite right. One of the arms was very loose and seemed like it was going to fall off. Upon closer examination the screw was loose. So, I took a teeny tiny screwdriver and tried to tighten it up - but it wouldn't tighten, though it would turn...

So, on this finally gorgeous day of Spring Break, I packed both kids into the car and we headed to the optical shop. The kids waited patiently while the guy there took out the old screw and replaced it. Good as new, I hope.

I'm just wondering why in a months time the screw came loose when she is extremely diligent with her glasses and doesn't take them on and off a whole lot. She is nothing like her older brother, who has gotten better, but is rather on the rough side with his glasses. We have to get his glasses adjusted a lot - sometimes weekly it seems.

Ah, well. I'm sure this is just the first of many repairs and adjustments for Belle too.
