Today was awesome.
It’s was Lily’s turn for a little one-on-one time today, and I took her to Preschool Story Time at the library. She was amazing the whole time, sitting quietly while the stories were being read, dancing and singing along with the songs… she even got up and participated in an activity in front of the room! The librarian had a little sorting game set up, where the kids pick an object out of a bag, then place it in the correct bag in the front of the room, based on the color. I wasn’t sure if she would want to do it, and if she did, I wasn’t sure she would get it. But as the librarian came around with her bog of objects, she reached in and grabbed a red tomato, marched up to the front of the room and plopped it right into the red bag. I swear, she turned around and looked at me like, “Pu-leeze. Challenge me next time, will you?”
Sorry, I wish I knew how to make this video upright. It’s still cute, though!
She had such a good time, she didn’t want to leave- so what’s a 2 year old to do? Throw herself on the floor, of course. Luckily it only lasted a moment (or two) and we were on our way. I decided that I should make the most of our time, and since we were already out, we went to lunch… and-get this- a MOVIE! We saw Toy Story 3 (it was great!), and Lily sat through an entire movie on my lap. There were a few moments when she got wiggly and announced, “Lets’ go, Mommy!” ” Hey, Mommy, where’s Ben? Where’s Ploy?” but I convinced her to stay put. It was a great afternoon.
It wasn’t so great for Ben… he was extremely upset that he didn’t get to go bye-bye. As we drove away I saw him freaking out in the front window- I swear I could hear him even with all the windows shut. When he got up from his nap, the first words out of his mouth were “Ben’s turn! Bye-Bye car!!!” I have never seen him so upset about anything, so I obliged by taking him to the grocery store with me. He loved it, it did the trick!
