Talk with Your Hands

According to a University of Chicago research study, when talking with your baby/ toddler, talk with your hands and gesture a lot.  It builds his/ her vocabulary, which pays off once he/ she starts school.

Now, how easy is that?  🙂

Which reminds me — Daniel’s favorite gesture is to throw his arms out in front of him and then quickly pull them back in, over and over, as he sings “Row, Row,Row Your Boat,” which is his favorite song.  I keep forgetting to get a video of it when he does it; it’s cute beyond measure.

Okay, back to work for me!

If single-mothering were a paid job, I'd be rich. However, it doesn't, so I write (which doesn't pay the bills) and teach (which does). I'm overly-educated in the liberal arts, but that doesn't hinder my ability to be pragmatic and realistic. YAY.
