We left for vacation in such a hurry that I forgot to pack all of the pieces for Chloe's vision therapy, which we do every day. We are training her eyes to work together and improving her tracking and focusing abilities. Hopefully, all this work will correct her lazy eye (intermittent exotropia) over the next 9 months.
Not wanting Chloe to be penalized for not doing her homework, we decided we could make temporary vision tools for therapy. One segment of this training uses popsicle sticks with stickers on the end that we pop up quickly in front of her eyes. She has to focus rapidly on the picture at the tip while it is less than 2" from her face.
While in the aisle at the grocery store, I asked Chloe if she saw any popsicle sticks, to which she replied, "What? Mom, do you mean tongue depressors?" Oh yeah.....well, excuse me. I thought that was quite a mouthful from a five year old, especially one who still mixes up "Y"s and "V"s. She always keeps me laughing.
After a trip to both the supermarket and a drug store we were able to collect all the supplies needed to re-create our homework (except for the 3D part).
