We were at the library for toddler time last week.
A mother was there with her two children for the first time.
The oldest seemed to be about 4. He was not happy to be there.
While waiting for it to start, I heard such things as, "Can we go home?" "I don't want to be here," and a resounding, "No it's won't," when his mother told him it would be fun.
Now, don't picture in your mind a bratty little boy. He didn't seem bratty at all, just perhaps unsure of a new place. (The only reason I heard him was because we were sitting right beside them.) His mother was also very sweet and kind in her reassurances.
Anyway, after a few more complaints the program was over and everyone was dismissed. I couldn't help but laugh as the little boy walked out saying,
"THAT WAS FUN!"
Here's a friendly reminder to read to your children everyday! ;)
