Conversations between Marley and me about bblindness 11/14/18

I sometimes say that I graciously shared my eye condition with my daughter. I have not written much about our Marley and me story lately. This one will be short. It actually took me a few days to share with my husband, and now I’m sharing it with you.

A few days ago, Marley randomly asked me, “Mom, are you going to lose all of your eyesight and be totally blind One day?”

I answered to her, “I don’t know baby. I do know that I have lost a lot of eyesight since I was your age. You can see a whole lot more than mommy can. It’s possible that I could lose all of it one day.”

Marley thinks about my answer for a quick minute and then she asks me, “Mom, am I going to lose all of my eyesight and be totally blind one day?”

My honest answer to her, “well baby, that’s a possibility.”

Just like that, my beautiful girl takes my response in stride, and continues on. I love that I am able to have these conversations with her. I love that she is able to ask me anything that may cross her mind. I hope this continues Ahn in our relationship as she grows.

  1. I’m glad you’re having conversations like that with your daughter. I just wish my mother can see blindness in a positive light like you do.
