I can't hear you!!!

So it's off to the ENT with Matthew again today. After consistently
failing his hearing tests for a couple of years now, he went in
Friday for further testing at Children's hospital. Turns out he can
hear fine - he just chooses not to. He's ignoring us or too involved
in what he is doing to hear us. Physical loss of hearing, I could
deal with. There is a cut and dried way to deal with that. However,
how do you deal with a child that is just obstinate?

After dropping Matthew back home, it will be time to visit my
physical terrorist again. He's made a lot of improvement in my
mobility and the overall level of pain I feel, but my GOD does
he have to be so cruel to do it? :) You mean I can't just stay
on vicoden for the rest of my life? :)

Kids are great, aren't they? Gosh, think of all the joy we have in front of us.

Oh, yes, if he is this obstinate at 3, I can't
imagine what he will be like at 13 :) They each
have such distinct personalities, and this is just
part of Matthew's.

Sometimes, kids are obstinate when they are young and change as they get older.

My Mom says if I'd been her first, she would have never had another. I was the 'demon child.' then somewhere around age 3 I changed and became a sweetheart. They even claim I was a pleasure as teenager.

There is still hope. *smile...fingers crossed*
