|Cute AND quiet.|
I’m getting older.
And, let’s face it, my hearing is not what it was.
Okay, yes, it was never perfect.
But it was better . . .
We have a little three-year-old granddaughter.
A tow-headed, blue-eyed little pixie of a thing.
And she keeps us entertained.
When we can understand her.
Don’t get me wrong.
She speaks in complete sentences.
Her problem is volume.
Now, I should explain that our family is known for its volume.
One can’t reach the back of the hall from the stage if one doesn’t have sufficient lung power.
And our ‘raised on the stage’ kids have learned that lesson too well.
There isn’t any among them who cannot raise the roof when called upon.
With voice only.
And this includes the grandchildren.
Our family get-togethers aren’t so much visits as they are efforts to be distinguished from the hubbub.
And that is what makes our little pixie-girl such an anomaly.
She will say, in a high, squeaky little voice, “Gramma! Habee-debee-debee-debee-debee.”
At which point, I will lean closer. “What sweetheart?”
“You’ll have to speak up, sweetie. Gramma can’t hear you!”
“Sweetie. A little louder, please!”
You know she’s imparting much-needed, important knowledge. YOU JUST CAN’T HEAR IT!!!
My question to you is this.
Is there such a thing as a Toddler Volume Knob?
One that both raises and lowers?
Please send me the link.
I’ll be forever grateful.
