Toddlers love to repeat words and sounds and it can become white noise — but not if you’re this family!

It turns out that toddler antics are adorable and hilarious in any language, and that includes sign language.

This little girl calls her dad, who is deaf, Papa G.

It turns out that Papa G is fun to say.

The result? Mom ends up translating:

“Papa G! Papa G! Papa G!” x infinity.

Okay, three minutes, not a lifetime, but still, that must be tiring!

“I don’t need anything.” (This is when you smack your forehead.)

My mom told me I did similar things at that age. When you’re cute and a little kid, you work it!

He just laughed, he wasn’t phased at all. Now, if she was tapping him, or flickering the lights, over and over again, that’d be a different story, I think he’d understand what I was feeling in that moment. #parenthood #deafandhearingfamily #deafhusband #toddler #coda #carrides #toddlerlife #toddlermom #toddlerparenting

I’m not a parent, but I’m an aunt and all I can say is: I know exactly what you mean.
