Keep forgetting? Don't worry!!

This time of year can be very hectic for most people. Sometimes people have the best intentions of signing consistently with their baby but when our routines get disrupted things that don’t come naturally to us may go by the wayside. You may realize that days have gone by and you haven’t signed to your baby. Don’t worry and don’t be too hard on yourself! It is fully understandable that you may forget to sign especially if you are just starting out. If you are just beginning to sign with your baby maybe pick one word that you’d think you’d remember to sign every time you say the word, such as ‘milk’. It is more important that you sign a word consistently than signing tons of words. Rather than stressing about remembering to sign (that’s the last thing any of us need during the holidays), don’t be hard on yourself, simply pick it back up again in the new year when things have calmed down. A little break in signing doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to easily pick it up again and have great success with it! Happy Holidays! Laura, My Smart Hands

That's so true! ^_^ I was just thinking about that the other day (the amount of time I was signing with my little ones), and then I remembered that signing with your children is suppose to be fun and engaging. Thanks for reminding me too! ^_^ Happy Holidays.

That is SO true. I think that magic trick is just ROUTINES. The more we engage our signs into our routines, it is easier to remember!
Happy New Year!
