OMG!! 6yos boys!!!! are they really deaf??? (a vent, mostly!)

(no offense to any hearing-impaireds.)
my gosh, i get so tired of repeating myself to my ds! is he just trying to piss me off by saying, ''huh?''..after i've repeated myself more than once?
if i've said, ''you heard me, jack!'' one time, i've said it a million.
