We had lunch this afternoon at Sanitary Fish Market in Morehead City. While we were waiting to pay the bill, Christian saw the stand of yummy candy on the way out and began to just chat it up with the ladies there.
"Wow, look at that! That's a lot of candy! I've been a good boy, Mommy!"
The sweet ladies looked down and complimented me on how well he speaks for a little guy. They asked me how old he was, and when I told them he was just 2.5 they were shocked. So, of course I wanted to shock them again. I turned Christian around, showed them his CI and his aid, gave the quick 15 second "My son is Deaf but speaks and hears thanks to this miracle of a technology" talk.
As they oohed and ahhed, I smiled, and thanked God silently. I'm such a proud and lucky CI Momma.
