Heard at our dinner table

Around our home, sometimes it’s hard to keep a straight face…

Skywalker: Mom, I met a new friend at the pool today!
Me: Yeah? What’s his name?
S: I don’t know. I can’t remember… but I do know that he’s deaf.
M: How did you talk to him if he was deaf?
S: He had those plastic things you put around your ear so you can hear.
M: Honey, that’s called a hearing aide.
S: A what?
M: A hearing aide.
S: A hearing what?
M: Aide.
S: I’m sorry, a what?
M (Turning to Sunshine): Maybe he needs one. (Then to Skywalker): Aaaiiidddeee…
S: A hearing… WHAT?
Mini-Me (Who was sitting RIGHT next to him, at the top of his lungs): AIDE! A hearing AIDE! Geez…
S: Ohhh!… A hearing AIDE…
