"Potty"


It's all potty all the time around here. So much so, that we see potty signs everywhere. The first time Silas signed "potty" when we got to this page I rushed him to the bathroom where he protested loudly that he did not, in fact, have to go potty. It was only after subsequent times that he signed "potty" every time that we got to this page that it hit me. Oh! He-who-will-not-eat-green-eggs-and-ham is signing "potty" and Silas is just pointing it out. And you know what, he's absolutely right. That does look suspiciously like a potty sign. Smart kid.

  1. Hahaha! That's so funny! So sweet and clever.

    How are you finding signing? I tried it with my daughter before, but she didn't really take to it :( Maybe I should try again...

    1. Signing has been a real life-saver for us. Silas has only really just started talking in the last couple months, but he's been signing since before he was one (he's 22 mo. now). Once he gained the ability to communicate things like "more" and "all done" so much conflict and frustration was removed from our day! I'd say keep trying. It's a challenge at first to remember to sign every time you say the word you're trying to teach, but it gets easier. We started with "more" and started signing it to him at around 7 or 8 months. I think it took at least 3 months for him to sign it back to us. But, since he was about 18 mo. he only needs to see a sign once and he's got it. Good luck if you decide to give it another go! :)
