Torin’s name sign is a combination of the handalphabet letter “t” and the sign for dancing. He’s been busting amazing moves and I decided that we will call him “Dancing T”.
Maebh, being the wee baby she is, having not shown any particular ambition in life, remains to this day “Sister M”, so again a combo of the letter with the sign for the word “sister”.
I still haven’t found one for myself.
Any suggestions? It could be anything from an animal (I like turtles) to any sort of characteristic typical for me, so if you feel so inclined, hit me!
The truth is… I haven’t posted much lately. For various reasons. But not to worry, I will again in the near future. Until then I am taking this moment in my life to literally (one moment…) dance in my kitchen (I really did a little jig just now!) and thusly commemorate my 6th anniversary of signing up on 43things.com.
I’ve sent out invitations to a few parents to ask them to book the course, and two parties have signed up. One has actually paid!!!
However, there are still two open slots and I really need to turn the marketing a notch higher.
I’ve also learned the hard way, right at the start, that people who are seemingly interested and enthousiastic about learning how to sign with their babies when they are talking to you, face-to-face, are much less so when they are invited to commit to attend a course and paying a fee for it.
I have bought an A3 presentation folder which I will prop up on a table in the lovely location I have found (my children’s crèche).
The presentation bullet points itself I’ve also finished, still need to find out if print shop can open “Open Office” files. If not, I have to do it on a public pc which has MS Office.
Tomorrow, I can test my speaking chops as I will be hosting the babygebaren.com info table at a small conference about raising multilingual children. Stoked!
Furthermore, I have designed my own company logo, OK, it’s not finished, but it looks cool, so far. Or rather cute.
