Give me a Sign!

Even bloggers who get paid to do it go on vacation every now and then....right? I hope so. Now that Labor Day has come and gone, school is in full swing, gymnastics night is switched and set, I'll be more on top of things. At least I can promise to try! Okay, back to work....

Hopefully you, dear reader, aren't tired of hearing about the Temecula Public Library, because today's post was again made possible by their fantastic programs for kids of all ages. Once a week, for the very reasonable price of free, moms and their kids under the age of 2 can enjoy a fun-filled half hour at Baby Sign Storytime, led by a professional and fellow mom, in the incredibly cute, totally amazing secret story room in the back corner of the kid's section at the library on Pauba Rd.

For good reason, there are a limited number of babies allowed in the class, but the good people who organized this fun diversion realize that free is a very appealing price so they had the good sense to schedule two sessions in a row- 10 am and 11 am. Viola! If you're running late, just spend some time choosing books for your little cutie, and go to the second session instead.

I was afraid it would be too quiet or too advanced or too much of a zoo or too anything-you-can-imagine-with-small-kids, but it was totally fun. My little guy, just barely 1, had a fabulous time! From the songs to the signs to the dancing and the parachute time, it was a total blast. But despite all that fun stuff, I think crawling around the room after everyone left was his favorite part:

For free fun that brings you and your baby closer and can help you meet other moms who are interested in doing the same, I definitely recommend penciling this fun activity into your calendar. I know you're busy and stuff, but heck, it's only half an hour!

Thanks for the tip. I've been in Temecula for 5 years now and after reading this blog, went to check out the library for the first time. I think I'll check out Baby Sign next week with my 15 month old.
By the way, great blog!
