Story Time #2: Pohick Public Library

This is one happy boy after a very fun story time this morning! Overall, it was a great time had by all! Here are the complications: it only occurs once a month :( Seriously?! Moms/caregivers of this age group would kill to have a weekly event at the library! It is at 10:30, which is really tricky for us to get to at this point in time. The boys have been napping until 10:30 or 11:00, so this was cause for an earlier nap. Jackson didn't go down until 9:00, so he only got about an hour in. I guess since it's only once a month, it's worth it??? I also had to sign up before hand. That definitely put the pressure on me to be there! Jackson barely fit the age group for this one. I think the other tots there were in the 18 month range. I wasn't able to register James (I had the same problem with the two girls I nannied this summer--they are sticklers for the ages), but he was able to just hang out with us.

The librarian leading the story time was great! She began with a welcome song that welcomed each child individually. Jackson helped me clap along the whole time and LOVED when everyone welcomed him! There were probably about 15 other kids and they all were so well behaved! We did some songs and finger plays. The books the librarian chose were all interactive, which was nice! Jackson got to use a shaker to sing along with "Shake Your Sillies Out" and some bells for the last song. I think the bells were his second favorite part :)

The other moms were really nice and some even talked to me! YAY! I didn't even check my watch at the end, but I'd guess the whole thing lasted about 20 minutes. We will definitely try out the December one!
Jackson's first nametag! He loved it!

Good thing Paxie didn't go because it would hurt to pull off his name tag! xo mimi
