Tonight as I was getting Ben ready for his bath, I took out his right hearing aid (the left had been removed earlier this evening for another reason). I rested it on the older boys’ bed as I got him undressed, got out his clean clothes and put these on the bed as well. Ben enjoyed his bath as usual, but returned to find the big boys jumping on the bed. I found Ben’s clothes, but I couldn’t find the hearing aid anywhere!
I tore the room apart looking for it. Hearing aids are expensive. I even swept under the bed. I unearthed all sorts of long-lost junk (that Jonathan was thrilled to see), but no hearing aid. I had all but given up hope of ever finding it again.
Finally, I brought Ben to sit with me at the computer. You can see how cute he looks in his PJs tonight in the picture above.
I suddenly noticed something hard in the toe of his sleeper. It was – you guessed it – the missing hearing aid! I have no idea how it got in there.
I am just glad I found it before laundry day.
