Hi! I'm Kelly Robson. When I'm not providing consultations and teaching classes, you'll find me with my husband, four boys (ages 6-12), and our furry friend Oliver. I'm either on the bleachers, or parked in my favorite purple camping chair on the sidelines. I love rainy or snowy days when everything is canceled and my whole family is at home together. I also love chocolate, flavored coffee, and sweater weather.
Since graduating from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, I've spent the last 17 years in different training capacities, raising boys, and helping families struggling with various issues - from infant sleep, to learning to communicate with their preverbal infants and toddlers through sign language - to guiding families through the often rigorous task of potty training. I truly love what I do! Every day I'm so thankful that I get to snuggle babies and help strengthen family bonds.
When my first son was born, I decided not to return to work, but to stay home with him and be the best mother I could be. Unfortunately, I found myself completely unprepared! Luckily, a friend encouraged me to read "The Baby Whisperer" by Tracy Hogg. I am still a true believer in her strategies and continue to advise families I work with to get on an EASY schedule from day one! Twelve years later, I laugh when I look back at those first few nights at home with our son! Needless to say, I have learned a lot since then. In 2006, I became a certified Sign2Me Instructor through Dr. Joseph Garcia's SIGN with your BABY® program. I launched Kelly’s Little Signers, to teach parents and childcare providers how to communicate with preverbal infants and toddlers through American Sign Language. I began teaching classes at local hospitals, colleges, childcare centers, and in-home day cares. Although my name has changed, my signing classes have not! To date, I have taught well over a thousand parents and providers how to sign with babies and toddlers. In 2007, I found myself pregnant again (another boy) and developing my second signing workshop. In 2009, I became a certified Happiest Baby on the Block instructor to teach parents and providers how to calm babies and help them sleep longer. In 2010, I had no idea that my path had been preparing me all along for my next challenge: I found myself pregnant with twin boys! Having had four boys in five years, I am confident that I have seen and tried everything! When things calmed down a little at home, I changed my name from Kelly's Little Signers, to Baby Bliss Consulting, to broaden the range of services I provide. I also teach Safe With You (Preventing Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, Abusive Head Trauma, Child Abuse & Neglect), Love & Logic, and Early Learning Guidelines classes. I love connecting with parents and providers!
