Good Listener

During yesterday’s evening tidy, Jane asked Wonderboy to put a pair of shoes away in the cubby.

Wonderboy, as many of you know, is hard of hearing. Even with his hearing aids in, he cannot pick up soft unvoiced consonant sounds such as those made by the letters C and T.

Which may explain why, this morning, we discovered that pair of shoes in the kids’ bathroom—in the tubby.

    This made me laugh! You know that he was very patiently thinking, “she MUST have a good reason for asking that these are put in the bathtub…”

    Your turn to make me laugh out loud! That is SO cute and sweet and funny. Anne-with-an-e got to you first today, but she called me over to read this. Priceless.
