Today was Grandparents Day at school. The kids all prepared a few songs to perform. I went and picked up Grandma Ginny because she is the only Grandparent in town. My parents are in Hawaii and Jon's parents are visiting some friends they met on their second mission.
When I picked Grandma up I was talking to her and she wasn't responding. I yelled, "Grandma, do you have your ears in?" She said she did. I let it go for a few minutes until it was obvious she wasn't hearing anything I said. I yelled at her again, so she reached in her ear and pulled out her hearing aid on the left side. She said, "There, that's better." I don't really know what to think about that...Either her left ear wasn't turned on or it is broken. She rather enjoyed the concert. I don't know if it was because she loved the music, or because she couldn't hear it.
This reminds me of a story about Brighton. I am not sure if I have typed it before, but it is worth telling twice.
I was doing Brighton's hair when she was about 6. I was deep in thought contemplating what things I had to get done. I am very good at tuning out my kids because they are always talking and saying my name. I obviously was doing just that because all of a sudden I tuned in when she yelled,
"MOM! DO YOU HAVE YOUR HEARING AIDS IN OR WHAT?!"
While we were listening to their performance I must have looked like a crazy lady because I was video taping while wrestling Jackson and Halle. They are both busy bodies and were everywhere. I am sure I offended some old people by not having control of my kids,
but what's new?
I can only imagine what the video looks like...
