Every parent looks forward to the end of the day, when the children are snug in their beds and there is silence through the house. Well, I can commit to that truth ten times over!
With the hearing loss, A cannot hear how loud she is being, (R I’m sure will have her day, when she is older, I’ll slowly wait) especially when the hearing aids are out, and no matter how much effort you put in to whispering, it just doesn’t last! It is a hope that as she continues to adjust to her hearing aids, with speech therapy, and with persistence, the baseline volume will eventually lower.
So – when the crickets are chirping, the breeze is blowing through the trees, and the birds are signing their evening tunes, it is peace in the world …. until R cries to be settled back down.
