Sign language for dummies...Zoey too.
Zedder and Mathilda taking an afternoon nap together
The Zedder's been in the careful care of Grandma all this week. She's been her same growing like a weed self, and it seems as though every time I turn around she's learning something new. She's signing now...things like please, thank-you, and more -- I never really bought into all that sign-language stuff until now. I see that kid in action and all that signing bunk really works. If Zo wants more...she signs for more. If Zo is asking for something...she'll sign please. If we remind her...she'll sign thank-you. It's cool. We get to communicate better with our daughter AND I don't have to tell all those parents who talk about teaching their children sign language to, "go get stuffed." I can, however, still tell them to "shut up," because we've discovered that teaching your child to sign is stupid easy. Show 'em a few things...repeat it often...done. All these parents who go on and on about "how their genius child knows sign language," are mostly full of themselves AND a healthy dose of poop.
Zo's also figured out how to sleep on her own, how to dance in directions other than a simple circle, and also how to fillet a 14 lb perch. It's been a big week. Next week we're working on how to fry bacon without a shirt on, and maybe keeping her balance better.
