Mary and I were in the van on the way home from town today, she was asking non stop questions and getting rather frustrated when I didn’t answer her right away.

Finally, exasperated she exclaimed “Mom, you must be ear blind!!”

I asked her what that meant and she said “you know, your ears don’t work very well. Like how being blind means you can’t see, ear blind is when you can’t hear.”

We then had a conversation about the meaning of the word ‘deaf’.  🙂
