Conversations in the Car - Vol. 12

Alec: I wish I had hearing aids so I didn't have to hear anybody.

Me: *turning down the radio* Huh?

Alec: I wish I had hearing aids so I didn't have to hear anybody.

**pause**

Me: What do you mean, honey?

Alec: I wish I had hearing aids so I didn't have to HEAR anybody!

Me: *sensing his frustration and also beginning to feel really confused* Honey, if you had hearing aids it would make you hear better, not worse.

Alec: Yeah, but I can turn them DOWN.

Me: *involuntary laugh* You've got a point there, kid.

**pause**

Me: Alec, why don't you want to hear anybody?

Alec: So I don't have to listen to Aidan or you or Marc.

Me: Ahhhh, you mean you don't want to have to listen so you don't have to obey?

Alec: No, I wouldn't HAVE to obey because I didn't HEAR you.

Aidan: He's got a point, Mom.

Me: *nodding, slowly* He's got a point.
