Because she has already lost her glasses.
Picked them up on Wednesday night; lost at the Wild Animal Park on Saturday morning.
That might be some kind of world's record. A bad, bad world's record that no parent wants their child to break.
I don't know how it happened--one minute she had them on when we were riding the shuttle back from the cheetah run (more on that later), and the next thing I know, I'm snapping a picture of her in front of the duck pond, where she puts her hands to her face and says, "I don't have my glasses!"
Of course we retraced our steps. Of course I grilled her about when she had them last. Of course we filed a claim at the Lost and Found.
But the long and short of it is that they're gone.
(Insert adult-tantrum here.)
She looked so cute in her spectacles.
But I really, really don't want to plunk down the cash to replace them.
