Muh Gweeeeze!

Ok... for those that don't know, my son is deaf. We discovered this when he was almost 18 months old. He has bilateral (both ears) profound (90+decibel) hearing loss. In layman's terms, it means if he stood at the front of a car and someone honked the horn he might hear it at a whisper level. (whoa!)

So, when my son was almost 2yrs old he received his first cochlear implant and 4 months later he received his second one. He is attending a school that is teaching him how to listen and how to speak.

Why do I tell you this? Cuz, for some random reason he can say all kinds of words but "milk" comes out as "muh" and "please" sounds like "gweeze" LOL Thus, the explanation for the title of the post.

Which brings me to the reason for my post. JoanneH wanted a small milk carton. I remembered getting one from Narelle several months ago but I never opened it. When I went to open it to see how she made it I was faced with the ominous Time/Date error. Grr! So, thanks Narelle for motivating me to make my own LOL.

JoanneH posted a finished small milk carton on the cricut message board. It works! :o) Thanks Joanne!!
