Story Time

Day 13 of 31
When I grew up, I lived 2 houses away from the children's librarian of our town's local library.  So among other reasons, I was a regular attendee of library story time.  I actually have memories of going, I all I remember were the carpet squares that we would grab from the big stack.

I used to love going to the library, so it seemed natural to me to make it part of my routine when my son was born.  I went to the library when he was about 2 weeks old, in hindsight, it might have been a bit early, but it gave me something to do in the middle of winter.

Story time has been a part of my Tuesday routine for the last 2 years or so.  I enjoy talking to the librarian.  It gives us a chance to get new books, which is really just changing the rotation of construction vehicle books.  The local library is not especially fancy, but they have a great selection of puzzles, blocks and cars that J likes to play with.

Last night, the librarian was unexpectedly absent.  Turns out, she broke a bone in her foot within the last week and is still in a lot of pain.  Of course, my first thought is that I hope the librarian makes a full recovery.  Story time just wasn't the same without her, we missed the routine she always does and we missed her!

  1. This slice jogged my memory. I fondly remember those story hour days. I loved "which is really just changing the rotation of construction vehicle books." That described getting new library books with my younger son. These days I find myself buying those kinds of books for his two year old!
