Preschool Story Time vs Toddler Story Time

Toddler Story Time

The Pros:

Before lunch.

Plenty of time to look for books before lunch.

Knowing your kids are the best in the bunch.

Cute babies.

The Cons:

Two out of control kids whose mothers never dealt with them.

Bossy nanny who insists my son hit her charge; completely false.

Texting moms and nannies.

Librarian who talks down to the kids.

Preschooler Story Time

The Pros:

More stories.

Children the age of Tornado E.

No texting moms and nannies.

All children are sitting and listening.  (Except Tornado S who I have to tell to sit down.)

More time to get things done before story time.

The Cons:

At our lunchtime.

Same librarian, but hey, at least the kids like him.


Seriously, how do you expect your children to listen and be a good audience if you aren’t?  I understand a comment here or there, but there were at least three conversations going at all times.  During the songs, there were like six conversations going on.  We all need our social time with our friends and other moms, but this is not the time or place.  I can’t believe I would prefer the texting moms to you, but at least they were quiet.

    am I first?

    That sounds like the story time at our library!!! I couldn’t believe how loud the moms were!! LOL!

    i cannot imagine texting while I’m out with the kids at story time. It’s supposed to be together time.

    BTW I’m usually the mom trying to get my kids under control. They don’t sit still well. 😉

    As the librarian that sometimes does Story Time, I never mind the kids who need to walk around or play. But sometimes the moms are the loudest!

    Oh man, I have witnessed this so many times! So irritating. Some moms can be clueless. I mean, I get that they want to chat with other adults, but there is a time and place, people!!!

    joz~ Weren’t they taught that libraries are meant to be quiet places.
    zeemaid~ I’ve actually thrown Evan over my shoulder, kicking and screaming, to leave story time.
    Maureen~ Now how do you handle that?
    Gibby~ Seriously. There’s a McDonald’s across the street with a playground; they could go there.

    The worst thing about children is their mothers. The second worst is their nannies. And on the rare chance a dad makes an appearance, he is the third worst thing.
