So the potential panned out that Lullibell is slightly nearsighted in her right eye and a bit more nearsighted in her left eye! After much ado and many choices we had her favorite frames narrowed down to three…a lovely purple Hannah Montana pair, a pair of blue Sponge Bob with glow in the dark bubbles on the ear pieces, and a silver and pink pair with Cosmo and Wanda from the Fairly Odd Parents. She ended up choosing the Fairly Odd Parents ones. I think she looks terribly sweet in them. Hubby Monster is hoping the old adage boys don’t make passes at girls who wear glasses comes true!!!

She also had to have her eyes dilated. I think she might believe that this is the closest to torture that she will ever come! It is now 5:00pm and her eyes are still totally dilated!

After all the fuss and run that we did this morning we went to see Horton Hears a Who this afternoon. I thought it was delightful. There were great teaching moments like “a person’s a person no matter how small.” And there were loads of silly moments like when one character says in her world everyone is a pony and they all eat rainbows and poop butterflies! Aaahhh, if it were only that simple!

Steve Carrell and Jim Carrey were funny but Carol Burnett was awesome as the nasty, overbearing, pouch schooling, know-it-all, purple kangaroo. Lullibell gave it 2 thumbs up. Bubba gave it 2 thumbs up. Hubby monster gave it 1 and 3/4 thumbs up (this is because he never gives anything a perfect score).

The closing scene where the characters all sing a power ballad from the 80s stole the show. It brought back memories of big hair and mullets!
