This past Wednesday night, our library hosted a special evening storytime in honor of Dr. Seuss's birthday. We haven't been to storytime in several months, so Arin was very excited to be there. She saw the librarian, Courtney, and immediately ran up to her, hugged her, and stayed right by her side while she read a story (and sang and danced) to the kids. This was funny to me, because in the past, Arin has been very stand-offish, especially with such a large crowd. This time, she was "teacher's pet"! Notice how very close she is to Courtney in all of these pictures.
After the reading, singing and dancing were over, it was time for the special guest reader - The Cat in the Hat. Arin was very unsure about this. As you will notice in these pictures, she stayed far away from The Cat in the Hat and she even chewed on her fingers, a sure sign of nervousness. However, she is still making progress. She did not run back to me, but stayed in the middle of all the other kids.
