We've been teaching DD some very simple sign language to help with mealtimes - signs for eat/food, milk, more, and all done. She's good at the signs when she does them, though sometimes she only does them when prompted.
A few days ago I was feeding her dinner, which involves me cutting up various foods and putting them on her high chair tray, while also preparing dinner for DH and myself. Every once in a while she'll squawk to indicate she has an empty tray and (sometimes) sign "more". After about 10 minutes I notice she's getting increasingly agitated and still has food left on the tray, so I'm wracking my brain trying to figure out something else she might like to eat. She's staring at me intently the whole time, and finally it dawns on me that she's been furiously signing "Milk" for a while now.
Her expressions just killed me - if looks were words, it would have been "Hello
I'm thirsty, milk please. Hey Mom? Milk?
Seriously, no more cheddar, I'd like some milk.
Really? Are you really not getting this
I told her it's hard to find good help these days.
