Who says she can’t communicate?
I was gone just over five days, the first time in many years. While gone I am not in contact with Pearlsky as I don’t know how much the phone or even a webcam would confuse her and as long as I hear she is doing okay, well, it is okay.
Friday evening I open the front door and as soon as she hears my voice she starts vocalizing, loudly, laughing and kicking her feet. She is happy and partying for a good ten minutes.
Saturday morning I needed to do errands and the nanny was here. When I return about 90 minutes later, Pearlsky greets me the same way, which is unusual. The nanny tells me that a few minutes after I left, Pearlsky started to cry (something she rarely does) and was upset.
Who says she doesn’t communicate?
Well, quite! Is she always that clear when she’s upset about something?
For what little it’s worth, I suspect that she’d be happy to hear your voice on the phone, and would probably cope okay with the whole thing. I know it’s irrelevant, I’ve never even met P – but that’s my two pennies.
My sincerest thanks
I’d be greatly thankful if you helped me generate traffic by linking to my blog 🙂 thanks again and you are an amazing parent
that there is a prime example of NON VERBAL communication 🙂
Not me. I am in the crowd who has been affirming her different communication. That must’ve felt great! Your gift for the Festival of Lights, SD. She said “I love you.”
That’s so sweet 🙂
She loves her father, deeply. No wonder…
That’s a wonderful anecdote, something definitely cool to hang on to for the holidays for me. I’m jottin’ it down.
Ok, she communicates AND she has bad taste in men 😉
Ok, I just read the rest of the comments here and mine doesn’t exactly fit, does it. So let it be known that I know SD in real life, and this is how we talk to each other. All snark aside, SD, that’s the best thing I’ve heard in ages. Love you 🙂
It made me so happy to read this! It must have been WONDERFUL to see how obviously excited she was and to hear her say ‘I love you’ in her language 🙂
Very heartwarming. It sounds like she’s a Daddy’s Girl, and with good reason.
Thank you all for the good words … and appreciating this as much as I did. I am sure she will be back to torturing me shortly!
“I am sure she will be back to torturing me shortly!”
Entirely as it should be:-) (daughters do cause untold grief to their fathers, no?)
Awesome! Our son communicates in his own way through vocalizations, too. We love it! And we know what EACH ONE means! 🙂
Just reading through your blog…..I like your perspective!
