I bought Miles those headphones because when he plays on the computer, or watches anyone else on the computer, he likes the volume turned way WAY up and it is annoying to everyone else. Why do all the kid websites have such grating music? So when I brought the headphones home we all rejoiced at how smart I am.
Until he put them on and started talking to us really REALLY LOUDLY. Some might even call it shouting. And because he could no longer hear us responding to him, he continued to say the same thing over and over again.
We stared at him for several minutes while he did this, oblivious. When he finally looked up at all of us standing around him, he smiled. “I LOVE THESE NEW HEADPHONES!” We couldn’t all help but laugh.
My 11 yr old son looked at me with the expression he has in the photo above and said, “I’m not sure this is an improvement.”
