Her Little Eye

Carrah's strabismus is just getting worse. Both eyes turn in a bit every now and then and the one on the right is severe. It just breaks my heart. I don't know why i'm so sensitive about it, but I really am.

I was in Wal Mart Saturday night and the checkout lady started laughing and said "Oh how funny, she looked up at me and her eyes went crossed." My face got blood red and my eyes welled up with tears, but I didn't say anything. I just wasn't prepared at that moment.

We got in the car and I just burst into tears. My husband kept saying "don't let it get to you like that. she didn't know etc.." But still, just the point that people would make fun of a child.. be it that they had a disability or not! It isn't funny to make fun of anyone..especially my child who cannot help it!

I'm sure it is silly for me to overreact so much, but I just wish people were cautious about what they say. No that lady didn't know anything about Carrah, but that doesn't give her the right to say something like that.. in my opinion. I don't want people to feel sorry for her because she is a normal child, but then again I don't want her getting made fun of, poked fun at either.
