Learning sign can be tricky, but if you break it down into manageable chunks it's much easier. Here are some easy signs you can practice around the grocery store.
As you know, if you've read my previous post about co sleeping I'm a big fan. However at some point there is going to be that period of time where they are heading into their own bed. We are there right now with our youngest (almost 2) and the same plan we used for Lucy seem to be working again.
A dash of spice here, a mix of ingredients there, and we are whipping up something tasty. Now you may not associate cooking with being adventurous, but that where you could be mistaken. Some of the easiest adventure to have on a weekly basis are with food. I recently read an article that said children that are encouraged to eat more adventurously will, in turn, take that adventure out into their lives. Which for me is a definite parenting win and enough to make me want to get them trying new thing when we cook or when we decided to eat out.
