    Hmmm, haven't seen this one before. Not!
    What I don't get is, this is on a massive sign and also how do the sign writers stay in business?

    I think the sad part is, I would guess under 50% of the adult population would pick up on that error...

    I actually just realised 'problem' has a 'q' in it and there is an 'e' missing in 'because' lol.

    Surely the businesses proof read the signs before putting them up! To think dd's gymbaroo instructor told me that she *had* to crawl for at least 3mths, probably longer because she was only 6.5mths, otherwise she would be illiterate

    I kid you not. They apparently had studies showing that illiteracy was connected to kids who crawled for less than 3mths. She couldn't respond when I said my brother and I never actually crawled 1 term and I was out of there!

    There are huge links between crawling and literacy skills. Crawling stimulates the brain and makes new connections Yada Yada Yada. There is even a set of special 'cross crawl' exercises that help kids who didn't crawl or have low literacy skills to help boost this certain part of the brain.
    So your gymbaroo instructor was right. And just because you or your brother didn't crawl for that long doesn't mean it's true for all. Plus I don't think it's exclusive crawling- even once babies learn to walk they still spend a certain percentage of time crawling.

    I'm not sure what's more insulting: the bad grammar or atrocious font choice ...

    Kristen ITC? Really? It's right up there with Comic Sans. EW!
