"My Alaia has been complaining about her eyes and that she wants to sit at the front of the class with her friends so she can see better, she also says that her eyes are blurry every time it’s time to go to bed.

"Being a Mum that normally knows when my kids are trying their luck I honestly have been dismissing it, I thought she was stalling going to bed and wanted to sit at the front of class so she could have a gossip with her best friends.

"Turns out I was wrong… she needs glasses...How do I feel? AWFUL. Being a parent isn’t easy is it?"
