Zhen and his glasses

Zhen went all summer without wearing his glasses. Terrible, right?! His day camp could not guarantee that the glasses would not get lost, so we just put them on the back burner. I continued the chemical patching, also knowing that they wouldn't/couldn't be expected to keep a patch on him either.

Now that school is in full swing, we are making a big deal about Zhen's glasses. I insist that he wears them when he is awake. Most of the time he is compliant, but I sometimes have to sternly tell him to put them back on, and he does, most of the time.

Oh no! Mom is yelling again!!

This morning  I was driving Zhen and Hammy to school, when he removed his glasses. When it was time to get out of the van, they were GONE. I put Zhen and his backpack in the back seat so that Hammy and I could search the floor of the van. All the while, I yelled at Zhen, "where are they!!" (Yeah, I yell sometimes!)

Then I spotted the cup holder next to Zhen's seat. Zhen has ripped out the liner of the cupholder. I replace it, but he keeps doing it and stuffing things down there between the interior and exterior panels of the van. *sigh* So I reached down there and pulled a few things out. Then Hammy tried, but we couldn't find them.

I gave up. Hammy got out of the van, then I went to grab Zhen from the back seat. He was busy zipping up his backpack and his glasses were on his face. That turkey! He had taken his glasses off and put them into his backpack. Sometimes you just gotta laugh, right?!

Zhen came home from school with NO GLASSES!! Not on his face. Not in the backpack. I don't know whether to laugh or cry.
