David talks a lot - and he's really loud. And the more I think about it, he says "What?" an awful lot and doesn't seem to hear me a good part of the time so I scheduled him for an audiology test today. I was preparing him for the appointment earlier in the day. The conversation went like this:
David, I think you might be having trouble hearing. Do you need to go to a hearing doctor?
Do you think you need to go to a hearing doctor?
So you think you can pass a hearing test?
He passed the stupid test with flying colors. Dr. Day (one of my all-time favorite docs - we spend *a lot* of time in her office) finished examining him and looked at me with a straight face and said
There's nothing I can do for David. Unfortunately, his hearing is fine.
Sigh....I always hate when doctors confirm my suspicions that it is my parenting in question and not my child's physical limitations...Thanks, Dr. Day and please let me know when they come up with a cure for Four Year Old Selective Hearitis (because, you see, this is not the first four year old with perfect hearing I've had in her office...).
