How will people know it’s me?!

I was going to post about Ellis’ new look and it was perfect to connect it to Nancy Merrill’s Photo A Week Challenge about something new, in anticipation for the new year. Thanks Nancy for hosting this challenge! 

Glasses are a new thing for Ellis. It’s not a forever thing; only a couple of years to strengthen her right eye. 

But a serious question has been worrying her.

When she wears them, how will people know it’s her?

So I asked her to think about mommy wearing glasses. When I put on my glasses, do I change into someone else? I’m still the same me. We had an existential talk that wearing glasses doesn’t change who you are or make you unrecognizable to people who already know her. Still, she’s wrestling with this big question.

She’s not too sure about this new look
