Since Kayla was about 5-months-old, I’ve been teaching her sign language. Babies can communicate with signs before they are able to talk, and Kayla has already produced a few–all done, more, milk, and please. Today, however, she amazed me with the sign she produced.
Whenever I can tell Kayla is wetting or filling her diaper, I show her the potty sign and say, “Kayla is going potty.” I also use the same sign when I’m using the bathroom. Well, today I needed to use the bathroom, so I showed Kayla the sign and said, “Mommy is going potty.” She them mimicked the sign I made. I immediately checked her, and the diaper I had just changed moments before was warm and wet! Kayla signed that she was going potty! Amazing! Wow, maybe I’ll be able to potty train her early.
