The Eyes Have It

Tonight as I was tucking Abby into bed she informed me that her eyes were actually hazel (because hazel eyes could sometimes look green.)

"Don't you like brown eyes?" I queried?

"No. They look like mud," she retorted.

The muddy eyes stared almost defiantly into mirrors of their own.

"I think they look like chocolate," I replied.

Giggles erupted. All was well.

Except . . . she still longs for those green eyes.

Love those chocolate eyes. They definitely predominate in our family. I rarely look into my own blue ones. Tell her to marry someone with green eyes and then she can see them all the time.

Tell Abby I always wanted chocolate eyes and got hazel instead. Guess we always want what we don't have! I love her eyes!

How funny that we always want what we don't have. Straight haired people want curly, curly wants straight and wavy haired people are just confused. Abby's got your gorgeous eyes and she'll see that in a few years. It looks like everybody got pretty eyes in your family!

You've just helped to prove my theory that chocolate can fix almost anything!! And someday, some handsome young man is going to comment on those gorgeous brown eyes, and she'll love them forevermore!! (I know this because that's what happened to me...when he called me his "brown-eyed girl," I was smitten!)
