If Tate has been teased about HA's or his hearing loss, I'm not aware of it. I haven't seen it happen and he has never mentioned it to me. I guess, if he HAS been teased he either isn't aware of it, or it was just water off a duck's back. There was a girl in Wyatt's kindergarten class that asked him repeatedly why he wore those blue "earrings"... ironically, a girl who wore glasses, but couldn't make the connection. But she wasn't mean - just not terribly bright or tactful.
I'm thankful that once Tate adjusted to the HA's, there was no turning back. We didn't have to put cords and clips on them, because he didn't WANT to take them out, and he was old enough not to chew on them :0)
In fact, at our house, "Hearry Maids" are COOL. And if you don't have your own, we'll make you some!
