As a mom, I tend to put myself last, especially when it comes to scheduling annual exams and that includes vision. The worst part is knowing I have access to VSP Vision Care through my spouse’s employer yet I continued to put it on the back burner all because I thought my vision was just fine.

And guess what? It seems I’m not alone in these thoughts. According to a recent VSP Vision Care survey, eight in ten people (84%) rate vision as the most important sense and nearly everyone (97%) agrees that having healthy eyes is important, but only half of people in the U.S. get annual eye exams. Also, did you know that an eye exam can also help your eye doctor see signs of common health conditions like high cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes, which the vast majority of us (96%) don’t realize.

So for these reasons, I decided to finally book my annual eye exam. And guess what? So glad I did as my eye doctor explained that I have pretty bad eye allergies on the inside of my eyelids. I also need glasses. Here I was thinking everything was fine even though I was experiencing all these symptoms that are vision related.VSP Vision Care - Open Enrollment-Why vision care is so important-eye insurance

 

Research also showed that…working moms typically clock 98 hours of work between office and home; the equivalent of 2.5 full time jobs. So it’s no surprise we are often putting things off to the wayside but vision care should definitely be top of mind.  

It’s clear for me now that vision care is an essential part of overall health and wellness.  Love that VSP Vision Care is committed to its members and their families through every stage of life.

So whether you don’t have vision care, or do and just haven’t enrolled you and your family members just yet – now is the time. For many, open enrollment is happening right now! Plus, even though most open enrollment periods are in late summer and through fall, if you experience a life change like marriage or childbirth, you may be eligible to change your benefit selections and add dependents.

  • FAO Schwarz makes its return to NYC. And guess what??!We were invited to check it all out this past Wednesday! Right before it opened its doors to the public. 😱 You guys, this store is seriously beyond magical. 🌈 And according to the girls, they had the best day ever! 🤩Grocery shopping, getting their hair and nails painted and even got to dance on the biggest walk-on piano keyboard with their daddy. .

  • #sponsored As a mom, I’m constantly struggling with pulling our girls away from the screens and shifting their focus to pretend play. Surely, I’m not the only one dealing with this right? 🙋‍♀️
.

So, you can just imagine the excitement that went on in my little home office when I received an invitation to be a guest at a roundtable with a select group of influencers — and child development experts in conjunction with Melissa from Melissa & Doug and Parents Magazine in NYC! 🗽More so as we love all the @melissaanddougtoys pretend play toys. Plus, I’m looking forward to hearing more about the movement that is at the heart of the Melissa + Doug brand: the importance of play — in all its forms. And to share with you all the tips and recommendations. .

Be sure to peep our stories throughout our stay this week because we’re also going to be attending a preview of the much anticipated NEW @faoschwarz store opening in Rockefeller Plaza!!! And check back for a full recap on the blog when we return to CA. There’s going to be an amazing GIVEAWAY that will surely help jumpstart your holiday shopping, too! #takebackchildhood
  • Can you believe the holidays are just around the corner? Where did the time go? We're definitely excited over here and are getting a head start. Starting with our traditional holiday ‪pj's‬. You all know we love matching so when the girls unboxed these adorable Emoji mommy+me Holiday ‪pj's‬ from @childrensplace they were so excited and couldn't wait to put them on. And truthfully, I couldn't either. Plus, they're ultra soft and cozy too!
