You know, the people who come up to my daughter and I, when we are minding our own business, and make a comment about my daughter's eye patch right in front of her.
Winners that I hear a lot of include:
- Did she have surgery on her eye?
- Aw.... what happened to her eye?
This one made me want to punch someone:
- She is so cute, it is too bad she has to wear that patch.
Then there is the lady on the sidewalk at school drop-off who apparently DID have to patch her older child when they were a toddler. She told me that:
I shouldn't be patching Belle at school and that instead I should patch her for an hour or two at home when she is in front of the television. She said that her eye doctor said the best thing she could do is watch TV with the patch on.
I just don't think so!
