The school holidays have been manic and I have only just had a chance to write about the Baby Expo. Lots of people visited our stand and the little quiz that we ran was a hit. It was a great demonstration of how natural it is to introduce signs into your daily lives with little ones. Being at the Expo provided me with a great opportunity to inform parents who were curious as to what signing is all about. A couple of parents asked whether it is like what the baby used in “Meet the Fockers” and the answer was “yes and more”. We were very excited to have held the information session so that families could have first hand experience of what signing classes entailed. Remember that the signing classes are starting on Friday 24 October on the Southside in a new location and the Northside classes are going to start on Saturday 25 October.
I look forward to seeing you there. Don’t forget to contact me if you would like Baby Signs to visit your parents’ group 🙂
Here is a picture of our stand at the Expo. We were next to the “The Dirt Girl” display by Pure Pod. They were great neighbours. My daughter has turned a green thumb and is growing the tomato, lettuce and sunflower seeds she got from them. I hope that they will grow! Our other neighbour was the Three Possums and one of the women who ran the exhibit adopted a son who used baby signs. We had a fantastic discussion about her experience.
Happy Signing 🙂
