Screaming gets the job done!
Claire wanted to swing at the park. She was carrying two buckets. I put her in the swing and held onto the buckets which was evidently unnerving to her so she screamed pointing at the buckets. I put one into her left hand. She kept screaming. I finally understood that she wanted a bucket for each hand WHILE swinging. News to me! Then she was happy. I reminded her to say “please bucket” but not sure it registered real well while in bucket swinging heaven! Meanwhile, I am glad the little one does know what she wants and at least does communicate in one way or another about it. Looking forward to increased vocabulary!
