Last week, my child finally cleaned her room that actually passed inspection. This earned her a sleep-over! I allowed her to invite one friend over for the night. This little girl was in her classroom last year and they had become very good friends. This was the first person (aside from a cousin) who actually has slept over at our house. I've not let my children sleep over away from family yet (I'll get there one day). As you might have guessed, she is a child of average hearing. Brooklyn had been to her swimming party the week prior to this so I decided to back off a little when the two went swimming at my house. I told myself to skip the interpreting if possible to see how the hearing child would communicate with the deaf child and vise versa since my little girl removes her hearing devices during swimming or showering.
