Is it just me…or have my kids gone deaf? Because it seems to me, that no matter what I say (unless it involves ice cream, going to a friend’s house or anything about toenail polish), my kids can’t hear me. I’ve tried everything to make my voice resonate a little louder. I went to college to work in the telecommunication field, for crying out loud! You would think that COMMUNICATING would be something I’m good at! But apparently not…because I inevitably have to say the same thing OVER & OVER & OVER again until I’m so tired of saying it that I just give up. My kids are still young and so I have to wonder…if they are THIS deaf now…how deaf are they gonna be when they turn into teenagers?!?! This could be MADDENING!!!
They say the show ain’t over until the fat lady sings. Well apparently I should have taken some opera singing classes in college. Maybe that would have helped me communicate? Break out some Pavarotti on their little butts and see if they can hear me then?! Oh…I know they can hear me. They just choose NOT too! Let’s see what they say if I start screaming every sentence! Maybe then they’ll pay attention? Huh? At the mall, haul off and do a few verses of “Don’t Touch Another Damn Thing Or I’m Gonna Go Off On Your Butt”. Or at Le Target do a few verses of “If You Can’t Stay Next To The Cart I’m Gonna Have To Hide The Wii”?
Think THAT will work? What do ya think? Huh? Hello?
I SAID…WHAT DO YOU THINK?!?!?
And apparently the fat lady has finally sung…
