A Tale of 2 Hearing-Aid-Wearing Parents

Hubs just got his hearing aid fixed after being out of commission for a week + and is now hyper-aware of the sounds in all the land once again. Our children are playing in another room.

Hubs: The kids are screaming, aren’t you going to go see what’s going on?

Me: No, they’re just playing.

Hubs: How do you know?

Me: Because the screaming is taking turns. Imagine they are chickens. Right now they’re like,

“B, bawk.”
“Ba ba, bawk.”
“Bawk, bawk.”

But when it’s prolonged like, “BAAAAAAAAAAAWAWAWAWAWWWWKKK” and obviously any accompanying noises like running, thumping, or you know crashing, then I go.”
