This is going to sound a little strange at first but hang in there it will make sense! Thank you, thank you, thank you for giving Kendall one good ear with just a minor hearing loss. Yes, I'd prefer her to have 2 ears that could hear just like most other people in the world. However, the fact is she has one that is profoundly deaf and there is nothing we can do about it. But the other ear, the good ear, thank you for it. I am so happy that she is able to hear music. That girl LOVES music! Tonight, as we were driving home from dinner, Kendall was happily listening to Billy Joel and singing along quite loudly. That is music to my ears! It makes me laugh and smile! While you can't understand every word, or even every other word for that matter, you know she for sure is singing along to Scenes From An Italian Restaurant by the "whoaoo whoaaooo whaoooooooooooo" which happens to be crystal clear when she is singing!!
Now if you aren't familiar with the song then you must be young or maybe I'm old. It's one of Billy Joel's best. Here it is for you:
Kendall, keep on rockin' out! I love you so very very very much!
- Courtney Powers-Graff
- Married mom of 3 not so little ones anymore but they still keep me grinning and giggling(most of the time). Kendall, age 12, Brady age 8 almost 9 and "baby" Chase who is 7. I have been married for 14.5 years to Dan Graff, who I think is the best dad ever to our kids. He certainly makes me grin and giggle to this very day. I have spent my non mom career working in recruiting on and off over the years recruiting Software Engineers. Other than my kids my most favorite thing to do in the entire word is ride horses followed by Kung Fu, where I earned my purple belt last year. I have been riding since I was 8 years old, with some time off here and there but I always go back to it. As Winston Churchill said, "There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man"(or woman in this case)!
