First Trip to the Library!

After picking the kids up from daycare today, Connor went to the ENT office for an audiological exam, Paige went to Grandmas! Once we left the doctor, I was so proud of Connor for behaving so well during the exam (his last two experiences during the exam weren't stellar performances) so I thought we'd so something "just the two of us"!

I decided he was a big boy and we would go to the library for his First visit!

I tried explaining to him that a library is full of books we can read and borrow! But we have to bring them back when we're all done! He was really excited and kept chanting some combination of library and raspberry!


When we were at the door, I reminded him that the library is a quiet place...and in we went to look at books... When we got to the children's section, he stared at all the books and actually let out a whispered "Wowwww"....
 
I encouraged him to slowly start looking at the books, until he found something he wanted to read...
He did find the toy nook which was cleverly placed at the corner of the children's books, but, with a few short trips to the toys, we found a few books that seemed interesting... we found a cowboy one, a sheep one, a mouse one and one about a boy named Alex... (Alex is Connor's best friend's name!).

Connor said YES! to the Alex book, and YES! to the mouse book (part of the "If You Give A... series...Connor LOVES these books)... and "Stay here" to the cowboy and sheep book.
So, we did it! Had our first visit to the library, and picked out books to take home!

I like that he is so decisive. My 3-year-old is currently addicted to, "If you Give a Cat a Cupcake."

I'm glad his first trip was a success.
