The actually is a reason why my kids had their jammies on by 6:30 last night. Our library brought back one of our favorite story times - Jammie Jammin Story time. Kids don their PJs, grab an animal, and head to the library for stories, songs, and a snack.
I used to love this when the kids were really little. All I had to do when we got home was throw them in bed. I would even go as far as giving them baths before we left for the library!
GG threw on her pretty pink flower jammies and grabbed her mini camo bear from Build-a-Bear. Little Dude threw on his pirate jammies and grabbed his Webkinz Jr bear dressed in an army outfit from Build-a-Bear. By the way, that outfit was not meant for this bear. His drawers keep sagging!
I quickly realized as soon as we walked into the Community Room that GG would be bored out of her ever lovin mind! 4 year old Little Dude was the oldest one in the room at the moment. Thank goodness I downloaded some good apps on my phone for the kids to play with.
Little Dude, however, had a blast. He didn't sing along to the songs or do the motions, but he never does. He did pay attention to every single word from each of the stories. And towards the end he did something that completely melted me!
Excluding out of town family that we rarely see, he is the baby of the family. I've discovered that he has no idea what to do with a baby. He almost acts as if he's afraid of babies. Last night I saw a whole other side of him that was just too cute!
A little boy was crawling around the room. He crawled up to Little Dude and sat next to him. Little Dude took his bear, held it up and made it wave to the little boy. As he made it wave, I could hear this teeny voice. He was pretending the bear was saying hi to the boy.
It was definitely a Kodak moment.
I wonder if I can use Little Dude's love of babies in my favor?!
Kidding! I wouldn't do that!
Until next time....
