Bee Gees... Yes - they do sound like girls/little boys on helium! I woefully drive along listening to Bee Gees tapes in my car (you can't get many tapes these days anymore!)

My comment surrounded the ineffable Deity's comment about TRADGEDY (sic)..

*dances because is bored*
*Dances with Willa*

My sister surprised me earlier, she was sitting at the table doing her homework, listening to the Fame soundtrack then I look round and she's crouched on the floor, head bowed. I ask if she's ok, and she ignores me, then suddenly as the chorus arrives, she springs into this massive dance routine! :eek: Randomness!

lol.....i'm not that bored to be honest, i'm watching an itneresting documentary about this deaf couple who are having a baby. Some of the scenes are so surreal....a group of people standing around having conversations in complete silence (the one hearing person looks completely bemused). And then they try and listen to music and they are like "I cant hear anything, this is stupid" they're sitting there and they cant hear the classical music!

All the scenes are so quiet....I loved the hen night....near complete silence!

How bizarre! I assume she was still in pain etc, just didn't express it vocally? Weird.

yeea....she looked like she was working hard.

I just dont know if I agree with the father....he really wanted the child to be deaf (they just did a test, it is deaf now). The fathers mother (who can hear) is really disappointed her grandson is deaf, but the mothers parents (both deaf) are happy he is deaf!

I just dont know if you should want that wish for your child!

it's odd that the baby was silent...do they react to their mother's pain perhaps? is that why the baby was silent, because it didn't hear it's mother screaming?

There's a couple that live near me who are both deaf, they have two kids, one deaf one not. In a terrible way it's fascinating to watch them all communicating doing basic things like shopping.

I think it's understandable to be pleased the child is deaf, it means they can communicate with them, I can't imagine how hard it must be to not be able to do so with your kids! My Grandma is both blind and deaf, she would rather her ears than her eyes anyday, she says it's so lonely at times.

but the kid who can hear, surely he/she can communicate with their parents because they will be able to sign as well? That's my point....a hearing child can learn to sign just as well as a deaf child!

Yeah, but there's a lot of pressure on the little girl, she can't be more than 8 or 9. It's better for the parents, maybe not so for the child?
Would it follow that the hearing child would have greater trouble with their speach?
