It is the time of the year again where parents have the excuse to dress up their little ones in costumes they wished that they had the guts to carry out. If you are wondering where are the appropriate places you could bring your children to celebrate Halloween without risking a nightmare or damaged childhood. Then fret not, because I have compiled a list of not-so-scary Halloween parties that are happening this October.
I’ve seen the baby corner in the library but never gotten the chance to bring Asher down. And since it was pouring heavily, we decided to just stick around the mall and perhaps pay the library a visit.
The sign says ‘Books for Babies’ with a nice open space for the little readers but really I think it’s more appropriate for toddlers. I had left Asher to roam free on all fours to just settle down in the area. The nearby librarians didn’t look too pleased even though he was quiet. Maybe they were afraid that he would mess up the rows of neatly stacked books. And that’s what he intended to do.
With such a vast collection of books, I thought he would be just as excited as I was to explore and start reading. Oh but no, he wasn’t interested in reading. Asher thought it would be more fun to play ‘Librarian’. He started taking out the books and rearranging them around the shelves.
We didn’t stay long, I think it was fifteen minutes the most. We had to pack up after a man handed him a balloon in which he seemed fixated on bursting it by pinching and clawing at. I had to take it away from him before it exploded in his face. Sigh… and so that wraps up our first visit to the library together.
For the time being, I guess he’s better off reading in our own in-house library where he won’t be overwhelmed by the hundreds of board books on display.
We had our weekly play date at my place later on in the day. Asher was really psyched and all over the place. We are eagerly anticipating the next one!
