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.
