Ashley Mozingo

Hi everyone! My name is Ashley, and I am a stay at home mom to two girls, Paislee, 3 and Keely, 1. My husband is in the Coast Guard, and is currently stationed at a Coast Guard unit on Camp Lejune. We have been married for five years now and have spent two of those years in Alaska, where Paislee was born, and two in Maine, where we had Keely. We were lucky to get stationed here in 2012, and call North Carolina "home". We were both born and raised in different cities in eastern North Carolina, and we are super excited to get to spend some time here with our girls and introduce them to some of our favorite places that we had as children. Before I met my husband, I attended East Carolina University, where I earned my Bachelors Degree in Communications. I have a love for writing, and a huge passion for being a mom, so I am thrilled to have the opportunity to write about my experiences and exciting moments of this rocky ride that we all call 'Motherhood'.


Baby Bifocals

Going to the eye doctor is not the most fun thing.

Saioa is extremely far sighted which means that she has to wear really thick glasses on a regular basis (see them in action here). She’s had them since she was 10 months old and when she has her glasses on, her eyes are fine.

It was a relief for us to find out that her eyes were turning in because of far sightedness and not something that would require surgery. Everything has been great except for the past few weeks we’ve noticed her eyes crossing again even with her glasses on.

I took her back to her eye specialist for a checkup as soon as they could get her in. Saioa did great letting them check her vision but the poor thing had to get her eyes dilated three times! Each time we had to wait thirty minutes to see if the drops worked. They never work the first two times because her eyes are so dark and thank God they won’t try more than three times. Each time I had to hold her down and I think she was a little traumatized by the end of it.

After three and a half long hours, we came away with a prescription for bifocals.

Now little grandma Saioa will be wearing really thick bifocal lenses until she’s old enough to wear contacts. And hopefully she won’t have to go back to the eye doctor for a long, long time!

How do your kids do at the eye doctor?
