Today after lunch, I said, “Bethany, it’s time to take a nap.” She raised her voice and yelled out something that sounded like, “Byes.” I was totally boggled. It was obvious that she wasn’t raising her voice at me, but I couldn’t figure out what she was saying. When I figured it out, I couldn’t help but laugh. She was saying, “Boys.”
Whenever it is nap-time, I call the boys and let them know they need to get anything they want to play with out of their room, so they can keep playing while Bethany is napping. She associated nap-time with calling the boys, and it was so absolutely cute!! After that was taken care of Bethany willingly crawled onto her bed and settled in for a nap, satisfied with her ability to communicate (and make me laugh)!
