I spy with my little eye

Truett has been complaining about some discomfort in his eyes so we brought him for an eye-check at the doctor’s yesterday just to be safe. As part of the procedure, the doctor got him to put on the special eye-patch glasses (where 1 eye gets covered at a time) to test his eyesight.

It looks like he’s got slight myopia because when the doctor got to the last row of numbers, he started squinting and couldn’t really make out what they were.

Doctor: Can you tell me what this number is?

Truett: *squinting and tilting his head in various directions to get a clearer view

There was a long pause as Tru was trying to figure out the number on the screen, then a voice quipped from next to him. “It’s 6, kor kor. Number 6!”

Obviously, I had to shush the little one so she wouldn’t interfere with the test results.

Me: Kirsten, no helping. Kor kor is supposed to do this himself.

Kirsten: Ok ok fine.

Doctor: How about this number? What number is this?

Truett: *pause

Kirsten: 3! Number 3!!

Me: Hey, shhhhh, no helping!

Doctor: Truett, how about this one?

Truett: *pause

I gave Kirsten my stern mommy look to make sure she kept quiet, which sort of worked because even though she kept fidgeting and inching closer to her brother, she didn’t say a word. Until finally, she couldn’t help it and she whispered to Tru: “9. Just say 9.”

I had to physically restrain her to stop her from talking but it was also quite sweet that she went to such lengths to help him. I guess that’s what siblings are for.

    O no.. Does tat mean Truett has to wear glasses? My boy wears glasses since 2yo.. No fun at all.. He ‘destroy’ his glasses every 2-3mths, average 5 glasses per yr.. No joke

      Wow serious?!! He’s borderline myopic so no need for glasses as yet but we’ll have to monitor him quite closely.

    Very sweet. Recently, Nat had to go for a physical examination, for school purposes and the eye-test was a chart of shapes instead of alphabet.

    I was the one who wanted to help Nat! HAHa. And I think after being asked the nth time, my son started guessing or got bored and every shape is a “circle”. HAH.

      So cute! Shapes are a good idea too but haven’t seen those around. It’s usually letters or numbers.
