I mean, it's completely educational, and a mama has to be able to get some things done sometimes.
But lately, the Laurie Berkner Band has been giving Signing Time a run for its money. I let Cora watch their Netflix video pretty often, since the music and the repetition is good for helping to learn speech. She even sings along to a couple of songs. Her speech therapist would be proud.
And since music is a great motivator for her, we practice walking while singing "We are the dinosaurs, marching, marching!"
In the last couple of days she has started asking to watch it. She will sit on the floor and stomp her feet, pointing at the TV and smiling.
This girl may not verbalize a whole lot, but she sure knows how to communicate.
And seeing her smile as she watches the music: signing along, interjecting her little head bopping dancing when the mood strikes... priceless.
