Sign Substitutions

My son cracks me up some times. He'll be frantically signing something, and I just won't get it. Then I realize, he doesn't have the sign for what he sees or what he wants so he uses something similar. During the summer, we were in the back yard and it was so hot, he kept signing bath, and then I realized he wanted to go in the pool. Recently, we were at the park when a guy drove up in a Harley, there's my son signing bicycle..okay kinda similar...the latest one, we were in the bedroom and he started signing knife, finally I realized he wanted the scissors. When they want to communicate, they sure can find a way!
