...at the library today. It was for 2 year olds only. She had a **GREAT** time with the other kids and the teacher too. She listened while the teacher read 3 books. She sang along to songs and did little dances too :) It was just the cutest thing ever!! But, alas, after our fun time...Haleigh gets yelled at by some librarian because she was climbing over the couches...AAAHHH!!! I really didn't think she needed to yell at her...she's just a toddler...although she should know better. I think her excitement after the class just got the best of her. Can't wait to go again next week!!

I'm glad she had a great time. We use to go but stopped because ds and one of his friends would not sit still and kept bugging each other. Well his friend would try to get ds' attention and then ds would finally tell him, loudly, to stop and then would turn to me and loudly tell me that his friend was doing xxx. Ds would then move, his friend would follow and it would start over except when his friend would start climbing on something then if he noticed it he'd want to climb too.

Oh and we have the opposite problem at our library, the librarians are way to lient with the little kids. I've been trying to teach him to us his quiet voice in the librarian. Until recently they have been encouraging him to speak up and they all say good-bye to him when he leaves. Its quite loud and everyone looks up when we leave because of it. I've finally got them to help me. Now they will tell him that we need to be quiet so as not to distrube everyone else, though they still say good-bye loudly. The librarian shouldn't have yelled, there are nicer ways for her to tell you and your dd not to climb on the furniture.

is that the only librarian for toddler storytime? that seemed like overreacting and ita, they're only toddlers. hm. ds and i used to go to laptime before we moved, he liked looking at other babies as he the only child at home. i'm glad haleigh had fun, though, despite the librarian.
