Orem Public Library Laptime

I took Lily to laptime at the Orem Public Library yesterday.  I have wanted to go for a few months but it is right during Lily's morning nap time so I never have.  Today probably wasn't the best day to wake her up early as she was already having a hard day, but we went anyway.

 There were a lot of little kids with their parent(s) there.  Today's theme was about mothers.  We would read a book and then sing a song, and then read another book, and then sing another song.  Lily was really excited at first to see the pictures n the book, but once we started singing she got really shy and clingy.  During the second book she lost interest and I ended up having to walk her around to keep her from distracting other kids.

The other kids seemed to love it, and I really think Lily would have liked it more had she not been having a hard day already.

Story time is scheduled for just 20 minutes which I think is the perfect amount of time for tiny kids.  Also, it's free which is always nice, and it's a perfect rainy day activity in Utah County.
