Then…I finally "MOM'd up" and held her arms down while I looked. Then my heart just sank….get ready…this is the WEIRDEST THING EVER….YOU'VE NEVER HEARD OF THIS BEFORE….her top eyelashes were stuck underneath her bottom eyelid. Yep, think about it….that's literally what happened. And her lashes are so long that she couldn't open her eye wide enough to get them out. I gently pulled both lids apart from each other and freed the lashes and she was as good as new but oh my goodness…the poor girl! I mean, how does that happen?! Wow.
I'm sure this won't be the last time she has issues with her lashes. I always struggle with sunglasses/glasses not fitting because my lashes rub the glass part and you just can't have that. It's terrible. I also swear I go through mascara faster than the normal person. haha…who knows but I think it's true. I was also made fun of a few times growing up about how long my lashes were…but obviously it's a good thing. I'm sure those girls who made fun of me then wish they had my lashes now. :)
I took a couple of pictures of my sweet girl after she fell asleep in the car and realized this was the also the best way to get good lash pictures.
We were playing at the park with our friends one day and Ella was swinging and one of the other moms mentioned Ella's lashes and how it looked as though she was wearing eyeliner. I laughed because I hadn't thought of that before but then I thought it kinda does…I think not only does she have long lashes but each lash is super thick so that makes them appear darker and fuller, too.
