OK Veda, I'm going to make a really big patch and put it over your eye. This will keep it really dark and it won't hurt anymore. "OK Dad." So, I proceed to patch her eye. Kathy walks in and says "I am not taking her to class looking like that."
Kid Translation: I tell Veda that her eye patch can only stay on for 30 min, at which point, her eye needs get fresh air for 2 hrs and at the end of 2 hrs, you can put it back on for the rest of the night.
Parent Translation: It will take mom 30 min to get to your class, at that point, you have to take the patch off so your mom isn't embarrassed. After class, when you get back in the car, you are free to look however ridiculous you want. Success!
