My Budding Librarian

October 20, 2008 by Michelle

A couple weeks ago, we had some friends over for dinner. While everyone was waiting for me to finish the delicious meal I spent hours slaving over, Mister Man decided to entertain Little Miss and one of my friends.

A couple things I noticed when doing this:

1) The wee ones apparently don’t get the difference between a still photo and video, as evidenced by the “cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeese”ing from Little Miss

2) My friends are weird. The “cleek” you kept hearing in the background was my friend imitating her dad imitating the traditional Japanese tourists.

Regardless, I thought it was very cute and sweet. I only took about 30 seconds of video before dashing back into the kitchen. Once safely back in the kitchen, I asked him if he was reading like they do at school.

He reassured me that he was doing it just like Mrs. G does. Oh! Except Mrs. G sits on a chair when she reads rather than standing up in people’s faces. He ran to the ottoman at that point and finished reading them the book from about ten feet away.

Can I get an “awwwww”?
