Baby signs "more" to ask her daddy for more . . . of his time!


A Baby Signs Instructor shared this heartwarming story from a mom in her Sign, Say & Play class:

"A. usually sees her Daddy at breakfast, he stops in at lunch, and she sees him again at dinner, but this last week he's had a big project that hasn't allowed him to come in for meals. He came inside for tools, and stopped to quickly kiss A, on his way back out the door- and she began to sign "more" while saying the word "Da-Da." Daddy responded by taking a break for an hour, to spend time with his little girl.

How wonderful that she could let her parents know that she missed her Daddy and wanted him to spend more time with her!"

That is soooo sweet! I had a parent attend one of my classes who's son would sign daddy, where a few times during the day. She thought it was really great to know that her son was thinking about his dad during the day and was glad to be able to reassure him that daddy was at work and would be home soon. -Kim

I'm so glad that I found this site. I signed to my kids when they were little and I know the benefits of signing to them when they are pre-verbal.

Now I am teaching sign language classes, and look forward to start teaching my new baby classes.

I will stay in touch on this site.
