Kat Reading

Kat Reading

Sunday, December 23, 2012


I was talking to Miss Kat with her implants off tonight and I asked her if she could hear me. She said "No but I can read your lips and your signing". (Of course I knew she couldn't hear me but it was leading to the next part.) So I asked her what she could hear and her answer was "Nothing". So, I asked her if it was weird not hearing, and she said "No, I like the peace and quiet." Then she said "I like hearing things like jokes, but not the rain, or the crashing and crackles (I think she meant lightning and thunder). Daddy has to wear those things in his ears (earplugs). But that is why i am just deaf."

Observations from a deaf child

This weekend Miss Kat made three really cute comments about her hearing that I feel like I just had to share with the world.

The first was Saturday afternoon when Miss Kat was hanging out with her Grammy. They both had headaches and Grammy was bemoaning every sound that hurt her head. Miss Kat flicked off her headpieces and smiled widely. She said to Grammy, "Bet you wish you could do this! There is no more noise." And then she laughed.

Later that night it was time to say prayers and Miss Kat had already taken off her processors. She said "Don't worry, I can just say it in my mind." She then proceeded to say the prayer aloud...guess she didn't realize that we can still hear when her processors are off. Love smiley 16

The last was on the way home from church today. We were listening to Christmas songs. Miss Kat disagreed with Grammy's interpretations of some lyrics so she said, "You are not good at listening. Maybe you need new cochlear implants!"
