talk about it more

a virtual baby book

When she was two, Fiona regularly said "Talk about it more!" to express her desire to know more about whatever we were discussing.

It should probably be illegal for a librarian mother to let her child get to almost 21 months of age without getting her to an age-geared storytime, but that's exactly what I did. I simply couldn't get buy-in from Big Sis to attend one, and since I figured that we were doing storytimes at home anyway Nora wasn't really the wiser.

But I had already resolved to take Nora today, and that's exactly what we did. After an hour of library volunteering, we headed into the program room together. While Fiona wasn't at all in favor of the idea before the storytime began, the program itself more than changed her mind. Big books, bells, singing, dancing, board books of our own to share together, and lap games were surprisingly engaging even for a five year old. It was a full program, and felt a little like a Toddlerpalooza when we all got up to do a Silly Dance Contest together.

And Nora's reaction? "Wow," she said in the car on the way home. "Dancing, Mama."
