Conversation with Catherine in the park

Catherine runs over to me with a crumpled-up leaf in her hand.

"Bye-bye!"

"Yes, you hid the leaf in your hand."

[eating leaf]

"No, not in your mouth."

[signing 'lettuce']

"No, it's not like lettuce, it's not good to eat. It's a leaf from a tree."

[signing 'leaf', running back and replacing leaf exactly where she found it]

"Good girl, taking it back where you found it."

"Hah-kah, hah-kah!"

"Yes, that's a helicopter."

"Na-na ah-pah ah-pah." [shaking head]

"Yes, you're right, it's not an airplane. It's a helicopter."

"Bye-bye."

[signing 'more']

"No, I'm sorry, I can't make the helicopter fly back here."
