I suspect the problem has less to do with listening and more do to with talking

Kai:  Sometimes at lunch I don't even get to play very much because I'm still eating when the second bell rings and I have to go in when the third bell rings.  And I'm the only one sitting there!  All the other second graders are done way before me.

Me: Maybe you should talk less and eat more.  Then you'd be done when the other second graders are done.

Kai:  How is that even possible?  It isn't like I have earmuffs to block out conversations!

He sounds like a lot of fun to have around the house.

And thus we see the struggles the boy will be facing for years to come. I laughed aloud with this one (which is kind of my trend with stories about the boy!)

NG-- Really? You think so? Because I'm not opposed to him staying with you for a while.

Trade you: You take my loud pesty one; I'll take your adorable funny one.

I love this! I never had a problem just tuning people out but I know that this can be really difficult for people that can't just 'Not listen'. My Mike has this exact problem.
