"I will not play tug o' war. I'd rather play hug o' war. Where everyone hugs instead of tugs, Where everyone giggles and rolls on the rug, Where everyone kisses, and everyone grins, and everyone cuddles, and everyone wins." - Shel Silverstein
First of all, I'm so sorry to not have captured the moment on my own camera, but it is still battery-less since our move down here. So that stolen image on the left of two random kids in some random place will have to suffice.
So we were at our 3rd weekly storytime at our new library here in Bowling Green. Charli is becoming more and more excited and involved in the stories and songs we do with Miss Robyn. It is fun to watch her become a "big kid" and follow group directions like that.
During our last Thanksgiving-themed song of the day, a little boy (probably 18 months) who had been running around and mildly disruptive during the whole program suddenly came to a halt directly in front of Charlotte. He then attempted to hug her. She shied away and looked at me to get a read on what was going on. I told her that the baby boy wanted a little hug. She then was more than happy to oblige. The toddlers embraced, and soon every adult in the room was laughing because neither Charli or the little boy moved after that. They just stood still, looking serious, holding each other. Miss Robyn was cracking up so much that she could hardly keep leading the song. Eventually, the little guy's mom came over and pried him away. Too funny :)
