Felix is fast. That kid will spy something he wants and grab for it – no hesitation – and he’s scarily accurate for a 10 month old baby. Generally they just kind of blob around like a little drunk person. Not my boy. He’s brutal on necklaces and earrings, once even yanking a hoop out of Will’s grandmother’s ear.
Glasses are another object of desire. The kid just loves them, and is adept at snatching them off of your face. I never had this bad of a problem with Stella. He’s sly about it, too. He’ll look adoringly at you. Smile that goofy little gap-toothed smile. And WHAM. Off your face go the glasses.
The lenses are disgusting. Like my iPhone screen (à la my daughter), there is this patina of filth on my glasses that is not cleanable by any means known to man, leaving anything viewed with a fuzzy aura. That’s probably for the best given the usual state of mess that is my house.
Happy new year, all. Here’s hoping we all have a better view on the flip side.
