mamamama and dadadada have been teaching me to say please. it is not that easy because please sounds like keys and cheese and it is annoying to say please to something and end up with a bunch of clanky metal, so it is good that they are teaching me how to say it with my hands. you make a fist and rub it on your chest. there are other versions of it too, like if you are busy you just kind of brush your fist on your leg and if you ask for something and you do not get it that means you have not pleased enough so use both hands and move them up and down in front of your chest.

  1. We taught Samantha ‘please’ when she was a little over one year old. She had two problems, though: first, she could only say it as ‘peace’, and secondly she thought it meant ‘yes’. Which was very cute, actually. ‘Samantha, would you like some more milk?’ / ‘Please!’

  2. i am trying to learn some more signs but right now please is so useful it is hard to imagine that other signs will be as useful.
