🤔 How does baby signing work?🤔
Baby signing is the use of signs and meaningful gestures to communicate with your child. By teaching them how to use sign language, you give them a voice before their first spoken words. 
Babies gain control of the muscles in their hands far sooner than those to coordinate their mouth and tongue. 💪🏼 They have the ability to understand the connections between things and their names from as early as 4-6 months, but simply don’t have the physical ability to produce the words for what they want and need. Sign language provides the perfect outlet for communication, allowing them to demonstrate their understanding. Just as you can teach them to clap and wave, you can teach them simple signs to bridge the gap between their understanding and the spoken word. 
Get in touch now to join our ever-growing classes, with a new Monday class and a second Newborn Communication workshop, both starting after half term and bookable now. Or, it's not too late to snap up the last few spaces for this term (just 3 left across all 7 classes 😱) [Picture: Connie at 17m perfecting her *tree* sign.]

  • We had a big certificate morning in Chorlton on Tuesday 😁. First up Charlie who is now doing a massive 10 signs!! Second picture is Cillian who has mastered 5 signs, and our 3rd and 4th picture (a trickier subject!) was Benjamin who got a certificate for doing his first sign which was “tidy up”! Amazing work boys - keep it up 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 We still have spaces available in our classes this term if you’re interested in helping your baby or toddler communicate before they can talk. Message me for more info

  • Well, I think gorgeous Archie will agree that it was a very successful start to our #Newborn Communication Workshop today. It was so very lovely meeting so many new mummies and beautiful babies. I hope you've all had fun practising your signs and your imitation/face activities :) I know for a fact, too, that Nic had a blast at her first session of the term - so much so that she forgot to take any photos! But when I popped in at the end of the session I saw lots and lots of smiling mummies and daddies with happy babies. My turn for baby classes tomorrow and Wednesday! Can't wait to see you all xx

  • 🔶(LONG POST... cont’d in comments) 🔶
Here is the very very real deal: In all honesty, Thursday was one of the most overwhelming days I can remember.  I still feel like I’m recovering from the nerves and anxiety that plagued me that whole day. 🔸

A ‘no’ to my house wasn’t what I wanted, but I wasn’t surprised.  What did surprise me was the way the meeting went.  I left the town hall feeling like the zoning board would have said no to me no matter what I said to them.  They were prepared to say no months ago, before they even read my application, before they failed to show up to the first two regularly scheduled meetings.  I left the town hall feeling like they were disgusted I would ask for something like this in their perfect little town.  I’m ashamed how personally I’m taking their decision. 🔸

I don’t mean to take away the merit of this experience from someone else who doesn’t have a back up plan or a safety net, but fighting for my livelihood in front of a board who had no sympathy for me, no respect for my ingenuity and no understanding of the importance of sustainability and affordability was really horrifying.  I’m embarrassed to say I’m having a really difficult time finding my moxy again after that. 🔸

I know I have options, but I wish it was easier.  On one hand, I find another way to bring this case to the town again, I take it off the property fix it up to meet building code, have it inspected properly or something and try again... But on the other hand, that’s a lot of time and energy and money and I’d still have to go before the town where I know my case would fall on deaf ears and it would be another no. 🔸

What is the point I’m trying to make, where am I supposed to be finding the joy in that? Do I go that route just to prove I’m not giving up? Do I go that route just to show the town they haven’t heard the last of me?  So the newspaper headline doesn’t say “Local tiny home owner defeated, moves into apartment” ?

تو اولین تجربه‌ی انگلیسیِ منی.
البته دومیش.
اولیش کلمه‌ای بود که با درست‌ترین تلفظ ممکن، صداش میکردم.
فارماکولوجی!
کتابِ نارنجیِ قدیمی‌ای که از وسط نصف شده بود. انگار ۲ جلد بود.
سه چهار سالم بیشتر نبود که یاد گرفته بودم هروقت بابام گفت: زهرا لطفا میشه کتاب فارماکولوژیو بیاری؟
من از خوشحالی بال درمیاوردم و میپریدم از کتابخونه‌ی خیلی بزرگمون بیارمش.
اون پایینا هم بود همیشه. اخه قد ام نمیرسید...
بهش میگفتم فارماکولوجی و این اَکسِنتِ نِیتیو ام رو مدیون ناتوانیم واسه‌ی تلفظ "ژ" بودم...
.
تو دومین تجربه‌م بودی
"بِنی اند سو" یِ قشنگ من
.
باهاتون رویاها بافتم و ساعتها به شما و کارت های هیجان انگیزتون خیره شدم و خودمو فول انگلیشِ نو فارسی تصور کردم...
.
حالا ازون روزا سالها میگذره و من انگلیسی رو تموم کردم. ولی نه فول انگلیش ام نه نو فارسی...
.
بنی اند سوی عزیز،
شما اولین تجربه‌ی من نبودین
و تو،
مدرکِ زبان با پرستیژِ من،
مطمعنا اخرین تجربه‌ی من برای انگلیسی نیستی
.
به دنیای من خوش اومدی!🧡
.
پ.ن: اهنگِ نارنجی-طلایی برق‌برقیِ امِریکَن از توی دلم پخش بشه🍀
