I know. It's horrible that I even just wrote that as my title of this blog, but in all honesty, that is what I want to say to Christian at least 3 times a day. Of course, that's in between playing the "Is it his age or hearing loss" game that I so hate. I am so frustrated.
All of the sudden it seems like Christian went from hanging on every single word I had to say to not caring at all. It was almost like switch was flipped on his 4th birthday that made him totally ignore me. I just sent an email to his teachers and in school audiologist to check his equipment. They probably are going to think I'm this crazy Mommy who can't come to grips with the fact that this is the start of 14 more years of him ignoring me in my house. It's just odd behavior for Christian, who usually makes eye contact and nods, and reaffirms what I have said.
I've also noticed some little changes in his personality. He's grown much bigger emotions, and now, more than ever, his sense of humor is exploding. I think he is going to be quite the clown, which makes me happy. I love how he is silly. I love how he giggles.
Fingers crossed that the foggy listening over the past couple of weeks is just a phase...or a dirty microphone cover!
