Story Book Time
"OH Books!" she screeches as we walk into the quiet Library.
We head over to where the other mothers and children are sitting waiting for THE LADY to come and entertain our children for 20 minutes.
"Mommy LOOK... a SHISH!" she said as she grabbed the FISH puzzle from the table.
I acted suprised and said "YES sweet girl that is a FISH."
Then THE LADY approaches and all the kids get quiet... All the kids that is EXCEPT for mine...
One mother turns around and gives my daughter the look...
I smile at her and pretend I don't want to go slap her silly. I want to say This is our first time, but I keep my mouth shut. "Yes sweet girl that is a Crab, can you come and sit for Story Time now?"
They start singing a song, and Hailey started running away.
"Hailey come and sing the song." I say to her, "It is a FUN song!"
"No Mommy...No!" I.Dislike.Defiant.Children.
They read two book, sang some silly songs, and played with scarves.
Hailey only payed attention when she wanted to. I kept telling myself ~ This is he first time, she will be just as nice and quiet as all the other kids after a few times going.
When they were playing with the scarves each kid had to go up and get their own scarf... Hailey tried to steal one from a boy who had already gotten one from THE LADY. When she finally figured out how to get one correctly THE LADY said "This must be your first time,what is your name?" Hailey grabbed an orange scarf and turned around and walked away. Not Embarassing... I did tell her not to speak to strangers...
But despite THE LADY's attempt to get her attention, Hailey had realized Landon was having more fun on the computers so she headed over to the other computer where both my childen POUNDED on the kid keys while the other little sweet children sang their silly songs.
Maybe I should listen to her when she is screaming " NO Mommy, I don't want to go!" next time.
Or maybe next week will be A LITTLE BIT better...
P.S. This is THE BEST Story Book Time I have ever been to. We have moved alot and I have been to 5 different ones... I hope we stay here because I LOVE this one. It is at the Clovis Library Fridays at 10:00 am for those that might be interested. For ages 2-3 it says but I took Landon too, and there were LOTS of little babies there! ~
