My children's librarian attended a workshop this morning, which meant yours truly got to man the helm for preschool storytime. We have storytime every Wednesday morning, and this is probably the 3rd time I've done it. It's a nice change of pace, and the kids tend to be really cute - but man am I glad I'm not a children's librarian. It's the same reason my younger sister decided against teaching Kindergarten.
Neither of us can be "up" and "perky" all the time. I barely managed it today, given that I've had an on-again-off-again headache for the last 24 hours. But I infused myself with caffeine and made it happen. We had some new kids show up today, and hopefully I didn't traumatize them to the point that they'll never come back.
Cute stories that resulted from Wendy's foray into storytime:
- A young lady who told me afterwards that she "didn't like dinosaurs" (today's theme was dinosaurs)
- A young lady who wanted to give me a hug before she and her Mom left. Awwww....
- And a young man who burst into tears when I asked him his name (I had to make him a name tag and yes, I did ask nice!)
Sidenote: Blogger has been having snits the last couple of days. It's been a bitch for me to get my posts to go through for some reason. So if you have trouble posting comments etc. I also have a guestbook.
