ASL Kids say the darndest things

Take a peek into a little Juli's cognitive world at age 4. One day, she told me (all in ASL as always with the English translation below):

Juli to Mom (Deaf) in ASL: "JZ (signed name) told me (invited) to sleep over her house."

Next day at preschool, Juli (coda) to JZ (coda): "No, my mom doesn't know your house."
JZ to Juli: "My house is gray."

Back at home, Juli to Mom: "Her house is gray. You need to find her house. The color is gray."

It's their super easy definition and concept of the address. For an adult, good luck with finding the house. :D
