The Art of Communication

Chase wants to communicate & wants what he wants which means that we need to know what it is he wants! Aside from dad, mom, hi, uh-oh & amen, the most important words in life seem to start with "B":

Ba for bye
Ba for ball
Ba for bath
Ba for what a sheep says
Ba, ba, ba, ba, ba (in a high pitched voice) for what a chicken says
Bubu for bubbles
Bu for bird

To let me know that he wants a drink, he brings a sippy cup to me & then walks to the fridge & hangs onto the handle until I get there.

To let me know that he wants something to eat, he points at the crackers sitting on the counter & screeches at the top of his lungs.

To let me know that he wants to listen to music, he points at the cd player.

To let me know he's unhappy with what I just did, he spreads his legs apart, bends at the waist & bangs his head on the floor (while still standing; quite an acrobatic move!).

To let me know that he's doing something he knows he shouldn't be doing, he says "no, no, no, no" while doing what he shouldn't be doing.


  1. I think it's hilarious when kids know they're doing something wrong--and how they tell us. Evelyn came running to me one day and said, "Mom, I just disobeyed myself!" I didn't ask her if she gave herself a time out--I was too busy trying not to laugh.

  2. Jody, I LOVE that! What a riot!
