with every kid who has ever been in my care (i used to be a daycare teacher, i have nannied, and now i have kids of my own, so there's more than you might think) i have sung this song, 'clap, clap, clap, your hands. clap your hands together. (repeat) clap a little faster now, clap along with me. (repeat) clap a little slower now, clap along with me. (repeat) bacy to verse one. then you clap softer and louder. higher and lower. so on and so forth.
i have sung it with shilo, and taken her hands and clapped them. but last night i spent a little bit working with her, and yelling clap at her left ear (she can hear a small amount of loud noises in that ear). i was successful.
i have two awesome rockstar little girls.
