Now a very grown up eight-year-old, Julia wants to be a bit more discrete about her hearing loss. At the very least, she doesn't want Mom having to give a ten-minute dissertation on batteries, how you'll know they need changed, and the history of hearing loss at each drop off. It would be really great if she could just carry her own batteries! Sometimes, on rare occasions when she has pockets, she carries them herself. (Then we find them in the dryer.) But most of the time we have to look for somewhere to stash them.
You can purchase one of these fine necklaces at my Etsy store, http://www.etsy.com/shop/TheMagicEarShop where I'll be adding new styles frequently. Please comment or email me if you can think of a design that would entice your child to wear one of these. One little hearing aid wearer I talked to was pretty jazzed about the idea. I think he would wear a plain white one.
