the smell of my desperation has become a stench

A quick game of let’s give mom a heart attack

I’ve posted quite a few photos of Marlo recently wherein she isn’t wearing her glasses. That’s because I had to reach a compromise. She must wear them all day at school, but when she gets home she’s allowed to take them off for a few hours. Why the compromise? She likes to take them off anyway and hide them. I can’t count the number of times I have found them tucked behind books or stuffed into drawers or jammed inside my purse. I’m afraid she’s going to hide them permanently at some point or break them while trying to do so. Thus, she gives a little, I give a little. We both win. At least until she’s so blind that she takes them off and walks through a glass door.
