Reading Glasses

Me: “How do you like your new glasses?”

Danger Monkey, age 9: “I can see the leaves on trees now, and all the little stuff on the TV screen.”

Me: “That’s cool. I think they look really good on you.”

DM: “And now I can read Mom’s copy of the Hobbit cause the letters are so small.”

Me: (tears welling up)

DM: “Isn’t that good?”

Me: “Yeah, that’s good.”
