Here's A Story Of A Lovely Lady

Let Miss Wendy tell you a story.

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:
  1. A young lady who told me afterwards that she "didn't like dinosaurs" (today's theme was dinosaurs)
  2. A young lady who wanted to give me a hug before she and her Mom left. Awwww....
  3. 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!)
I also always introduce myself to the kids as Miss Wendy "The Manager" and explain to them that it's my job to boss everyone else around. They tend to get a big kick out of that, as do there parents. Even though it's not my managerial style to boss anyone around....

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.

What a fun blog! I'm so glad I found it. Hope you don't mind if I visit often.

Blogger's been difficult lately, hasn't it? Nine times today it told me that it couldn't post my post -- then it posted it nine times and it took me two hours to delete the extras because it said it couldn't find the page, etc., etc., etc.

Hop on over to sometime. Some of my writer friends (whose blogs are listed on my blog, write romance serials for KIC. I write four serials under two different names for them -- but none of them are strictly romance.

I DID write a romantic comedy for, called GLAMOROUS HEARTS, which should be up in a couple of months.

Sorry to ramble -- like your site!

Blogger has been better for me today, but yesterday it was Hell. Same sort of thing - "document contains no data" or you hit a link/button/whatever and it takes 700 years to load.

Glad you found my blog! Come back anytime - the door is always open :)
