A Sweet Moment
Tonight, I had to run to Giant Eagle to pick mini-marshmallows for Allison. Tomorrow is the 100th day of school and she needed 100 of a food item. Of course I did not know about this until about 6:45 pm when I looked in her folder and saw the note. I took Allison with me, so I could make sure that I got the right ones. While I was checking out at the self-checkout line, Allison was at the end making sure that the marshmallows did not get smashed. The manager came over to help bag the items and saw the marshmallows and asked Allison about them. Allison explained what they were for and that she had to go home and count 100 of them for school. It was a moment that will never get old for me, my deaf little girl was talking and answering questions. I did not have to explain to the manager that she was deaf and could not hear her, I did not have to interpret for her, I could just stand there and listen to my little girl talk. The amazing thing is, I don't think the manager even knew, Allison's hair was down and covering her ears.
