I have sensitive eyes… or maybe it’s the harsh Arizona sun, either way, I CANNOT leave the house without a pair of sunglasses on. I literally feel like I’ve been blinded and can barely keep my eyes open if I’m outside without sunglasses and driving without them is just a joke!
Back in our pre-Brynlee, dual-income days, I used to love buying designer sunglass. They were all so pretty and there were so many different designs to choose from.
Nowadays, I have only two prerequisites, they have to be big and that have to be cheap! I don’t want to constantly worry about Brynlee pulling them off my face and scratching (or worse breaking) them. It appears she inherited my love of sunglasses and now owns more pairs than I do.
I don’t want to worry about throwing them in my diaper bag only to pull them out later covered in puff crumbs and who knows what else that might have exploded in there.
And most of all, since becoming a mama and having a bajillion child related things running through my head at any given time, I don’t need to add worrying about my expensive sunglasses to the list. I can’t tell you how many pairs of sunglasses I’ve lost in the last 2 years, but it has been numerous!!
Now, whenever I am out shopping and I happen across an inexpensive pair of sunglasses I snatch those baby’s up so fast you would think my life depended on it. My total investment for the sunglasses pictured above, $11! Yep, no worries here about losing, scratching or breaking any of those glasses. My mind is free to continue to worry if I am doing this whole parenting thing right and obsess over the last mistake I made while hoping to never do it again!
