Elisabeth got her hearing aids this week. Now she’ll finally be able to hear all of the pop culture references and other piddly crap I bore people with on a daily basis. We can also stop using loud Van Halen albums to put her to sleep. Patty & I couldn’t be happier, and as I mentioned before, we’re glad that her hearing can be assisted or “aided,” if you will.
I confess that when I first envisioned Elisabeth wearing hearing aids, I imagined this:
However, Patty was not agreeable to the nickname, “TooCuteus of Borg.”
We had a choice of colors for the hearing aids; Patty wanted pink, and I wanted black. Anyway, check out Elisabeth’s pink hearing aids!
I was holding Elisabeth when the hearing aids were switched on. As soon as she heard my voice, her eyes opened wide with amazement. When Patty talked to her, Elisabeth immediately turned to her and smiled. This was definitely an experience I will never forget.
I’ll just leave it at that for now.
