An Open Letter to My Two Year Old

My dear, sweet Nolan,

While jumping down the stairs is entertaining to you, it is giving your mother a heart attack. Please hold onto the handrail and walk down the stairs from now on.

Also, while it sounds like the word "toy" is in toilet, I assure you this object is not meant to be played with. Trust me on this one.

The cat doesn't like playing "dinosaur chase." His tail is also not a handle. And no, the cat doesn't really want to eat your applesauce.

And, my dear boy, these precious little objects are not Legos:

And could you please tell Mommy where the other hearing aid went? Please?

Oh dear.

They should make them beep, like my cordless phone.

Any luck?


Drew's Mom said...

Oh, that sucks! I hope you find it soon!

Have you ever used the critter clips? At least then, if he pulls them off, they are attached to him. Just a thought!

leah said...

Yep- he actually had the critter clip on. Because it attaches to the tone hook with a looped cord, it can slip off the aid when the earmold is removed. Nolan, in his diabolical genius, has discovered this little flaw and exploited it. Hence, earmolds and BTE cases scattered throughout the house.

We haven't had this behavior in a long time, but he's underamplified right now (on purpose, because we're not sure if the extra loss his temporary or not). He's not too happy with his aids. Hopefully the visit to the ENT on Monday will solve things.

And, we did find the other hearing aid. Thank goodness!

I'm so sorry, but hahahahahahaha!

So glad you found them :-)

Ericka said...

So glad you found the other aid! Miles is still chewing his earmolds. I have so much super glue on them, that they probably are not very comfortable anymore. sigh. Maybe they will stop this when they turn 3? I hope!

Oh dear! Glad you were able to find it. I love your blog- my hearing loss wasn't diagnosed until I was three and a half, and while early identification is wonderful, reading your blog has showed me it presents a whole new set of challenges! Hope you get everything straightened out with the hearing test.

I really hope you find the aid.It must be so terrible to have him hearing with one.I really wish they could think of some remote control , so you can beep them specially for little kids, or maybe flashy stuff for adults if they don't know where they kept it.

Oh my. Sorry, but I had to laugh out loud at all this as I feel your pain. I think Nolan and Aiden were split at birth. They're so much alike in many, many ways! I've decided to learn to sign "Where are your CIs?" because lately, they too have gone missing at the slightest turn of my back - critter clip or not. We have locks on ALL of our toilets, he tries to WALK down the stairs by himself and I can just pray he doesn't start to try to jump down them, YET. Good luck, I'll be thinking of you! : )

ah yes... they do love to drive us crazy, don't they.

Mandie said...

Ugh! Oh no! I hope you find it!

Oh my goodness, this made me laugh because I can totally understand. I know it is only funny to everyone who is not you. :)
