After a lazy morning at home, I knew we’d both enjoy getting out for the afternoon. So when Grae woke up from her nap and had had her quiet time, I asked her if she wanted to go to the beach. As soon as I said “beach”, she started signing ‘Rock! Rock!’ (we always collect rocks at the beach), then ‘Birdie!’ (we watch the crows and seagulls), followed by ‘Drink! Drink!’ (we often cross the street to get hot drinks at Starbucks). Smart little cookie. I took that as a yes.
