My stepmother is an audiologist so I grew up with a knowledge of decibels and its affect on hearing. With my recent war on dog hair, I’ve become acutely aware of the volume of the vacuum cleaner. I love my dyson, but I love Cecilia’s hearing more. At first, I tried leaving Cecilia in her pack’n'play while I vacuumed in the other room, but she was upset by the loud noise and disappearance of her momma. I also tried waiting until Chris was home so he could hang with her while I vacuumed, but that didn’t happen as frequently as needed. Two weeks ago, I ordered a pair of Peltor Junior Earmuffs.
I was a little worried that Cecilia wouldn’t tolerate them, but I was happily surprised that she was completely ambivalent. Now I can clean the floors without permanently damaging her hearing, and, as an added bonus, she looks stinkin’ cute in them!
(That’s a drink coaster in her mouth.)
