The Naughty Signer.

 

Have I mentioned that Logan LOVES school? Well he does. So much so, that once he is home, he is a constant chatter box in smatterings of four languages! English of course, Japanese, Spanish and sign language; fortunately for me, sign language is quiet because I just don't know how much more background noise my ears can take. Logan is obviously not fluent in Japanese, Spanish or Sign Language but he takes each of these for an hour a week and apparently pays very close attention to every word taught because he comes home to teach us at the dinner table (much to his delight).

Anyway, so tonight Logan was mad at me. I made the error of asking him to put his jammies on and he just plain wasn't ready to do it yet. I asked him 4 times nicely and then told him he was going to get a consequence for not listening to me (oh the horror of having to sit on your bed for 5 minutes). Well, this just irritated him so he scowled at me as he stomped down the hall and just as he was turning the corner to his room, his right hand appeared around the corner and signed 4 little letters to me. B-O-O-B! !!! What had my baby just done? I was shocked and laughing hysterically at the same time. He knows that if he were to say that to me (and where did he learn this word anyway?!) he would have been in much bigger trouble, so to conquer this yet still get his point across, he signed it.

What is a mom to do? My angel is signing potty words at me!

By the way, Dana thought this was hilarious.

Good luck with that. It would be really hard to not laugh.

Oh, Cathryn that is so funny!!! He is just like my brother, everyone thought he was this sweet little angel, but he had feelings like everyone else and he found ways of expressing them, although most the time he never got caught.
But before you get mad, just think how many times youv'e probably (well I know I do it) called someone a name in your mind. Although not perfect, it beats saying it out loud. What a cute boy!!!

That is hilarious - of all the words he could have picked! It's just like the word scrawled on the sidewalk outside Kadena Elementary - POOP - makes me laugh every time. I love that this is the worst they can do at this point. :)

Hilarious! What a smart boy.

What a clever rascal! It's great that you are writing these things down. I forget things all too quickly! Hey, could you email me your address so we can send you a Christmas card? Thanks!

Oh Cathryn! This was so funny! It's a good thing you know some of the language so you can tell what he's saying!!

Cathryn said...

The only reason I know ANY of the language is because Logan MAKES me do it! He won't let me go until I sign it right and say it right. :)

Now that is funny!!! Such a bad influence - that school and learning thing!

Greg said...

That is funny. Be grateful it was in sign language. My girls talk back...and it's in very understandable ENGLISH...usually in a loud voice as well.

I would prefer my kids talked to me in sign launguage when they want to be rude. We'll work on that. ;) What a funny story!
