Back to my story... So I was putting her in bed, the usual routine and I was feeling a tad bit sorry for her, 'cause she'd had a rough day in her own little eyes. She stared into my face, watching me tell her goodnight (remember no hearing at night) and she watched me "mouthing" my "I love you's"...she watched me tell her in my unvoiced but exaggerated facials "be good tomorrow, you can watch TV". She's not typically a star lip reader but she manages and we are working on that. She held up her "I love you" sign, and I gave her one right back...It was hard for me to believe such a sweet and precious child can sometimes work as hard as she does for negative attention...but again, we are working on that. I hugged her tight and she smiled what appeared to be an innocent and tired little grin....but apparently she had me fooled! That was no innocent and tired grin, it was the evil grin of a sly child who had just fooled her mom into putting her to bed with her processors on. She enjoyed watching me in sound vs. silence and she shared her evil laughter with the whole house, 'cause she got me.
