View Full Version : Does anyone else cry when they watch the end of Signing Times?
05-20-2004, 04:37 PM
So my new and wonderful BBB friend Chrissy (heytootsy) lent me her copy of Signing Times volume 1. I love it - we've used the Parents magazine flash cards to learn signs to teach Shelby, but we've never worked with a video. We all really like it. But when she sings that song at the end, "Show me a sign" -- it makes me all choked up and teary eyed. I just love the words. Anyway, wondering if that happens to you, too....

We just bought the DVDs about a month ago and only have watched the first 2. However, I got teary-eyed when reading one of the inserts to the DVDs. I even ran upstairs to tell DH about their two girls and why they did the series.
I do love that "Show me a sign" song...I am an American Idol addict and after hearing this song I thought it would be so cool if we had a contestant that could sign songs. That is probably cheesy, but after seeing the signing times woman sing/sign this song I think it is so beautiful.

Ok, I'll fess up. The "Show Me a Sign" song makes me a little teary, but "The Good" makes me bawl.
When did I become such a sap????

Where did you get Signing Times? I remember there being a co-op way back when but I think there was a SAHM who had her own website matching the co-op price. Does anyone remember?

I almost posted about "The Good" recently...I really get choked up everytime I hear that song (last song on the Signing Time cd). I play it just for myself in the car (usually a few times in a row)!!

I am so happy someone posted this. I cry every time I hear both of those songs!
Can I ask you all who are using these DVD's how long it took your children to start signing? How old were they when you started teaching and how old when they used their first sign?

"The Good" gets me everytime too!

I used to cry everytime the video started! I thought I was just highly hormonal but it took me a good two months to stop getting teary. Oh, the joys of being so happy to be a mommy. :)

we started watching the first DVD when Logan was 6 months old. After watching it 3 times, she started to mimic the "milk" sign. We did a lot of reinforcement and she soon learned to associate it with nursing.
About 2 months later, she picked up "more". Another 2 or 3 months and she had "eat" and "water". There were others along the way that she would mimic, but those are the 3 that she uses in context. Now that she get the concept, learning new signs is just a matter of dexterity. She tries to do "apple" and "cracker" now.

LOL! I cry every time I hear it too. It is so touching. OK, how sad is this, I'm tearing up just thinking about the blasted song! :)

Glad I'm not the only one :)

We started watching at about 9 months and she was signing by ~11months. Today at 15 months she knows just about every sign in all 3 videos - ~60-70 signs. Now she doesn't necessarily understand every word she is signing in the videos but she surprises me all the time. Plus her little hands and fingers can't always reproduce the exact sign so I have to watch the video with her to see her version of the signs. Then often it is guesswork and context for me to understand what she is signing. But she definitely communicates using her signs.

We've only watched #1 so far... I'm holding off on 2 and 3 until some progress with #1 occurs.
DS isn't signing yet, but he is starting to notice that his fingers move more than just for grabbing things.
The best part about him watching is that he said "car" the other day. We were watching and they were just starting the "car" part. The kids said car about 3 times, then DS suddenly said "car." Now everytime we say car, he says car, too! We are so excited!! So I look at the videos not just for teaching signs, but also sounds. (now, I just have to show him what he's saying so he gets the association--but we have time.) :)

I'm with you at tearing up. Both tracks 10 (Show Me a Sign) and 11 (The Good) get me. DS is much more interested in the CD than watching the DVDs right now and those 2 get more play time than the others. Has anyone else noticed that the other songs get stuck in your head and you can't get them out? Within one time of listening to the theme song, I was singing it for the next couple of days!
