At Cash’s 4 year well-child checkup we had the doctor check his ears. He was really struggling to hear Cale and me and wouldn’t respond to the simplest, loudest directions. After the doctor examined him, he paused for a reeeeally long time. I was getting worried. It seemed like we sat there for a good five minutes waiting for the doctor to tell us that our son is hearing impaired.
He says ….
“Amanda …….. his hearing is perfect. Cash can hear you just fine. He’s just not listening to you.”
Another long silent break…..
“Check. Him. Again.” I said.
He’s FOUR!! He’s four and has selective hearing ALREADY?!?!
