I'm Not the Star Attraction

At a recent library storytime, a little girl noticed the video setup as soon as she entered the room. "Are we having a movie today?" she gushed. When I responded in the affirmative, she squealed with delight.

After each story, song and fingerpuppet activity, she asked again, "Are we having the movie now?"

The poor kid. She looked so disappointed each time I said, "Not yet." When it was finally time for the movie (near the end of the storytime), she was literally bouncing, she was so excited.

At least I now know I rank somewhere below a six-minute video.

Maybe you should have just stuck her on a computer and pointed her to YouTube...

Kim: I got the feeling this kid spends a lot of time in front of the television and/or computer. She can probably surf the 'net better than me already!

Seaspray: It was pretty funny, seeing how excited she got over a six-minute video. I may rank below the movie in popularity, but at least I got a few hugs from the kids at the end of storytime!
