The day started with William losing his front tooth while eating cereal, so he accidentally swallowed it. He is very nervous the tooth fairy will be upset. We left a note and I reassured him that tooth fairies understand this type of thing.
We were then off to see a play, Strega Nona. We have read all of the books by Tomie dePaola and the boys were so excited to see how it was to come together. They wove many of the stories into the play. There is this cute little poem that Strega Nona says when she is using her magic pasta pot. The boys had it memorized and were chiming in as the actors were singing it. It was really exciting to see them be so enthusiastic about the show.
Once the play was finished we ate lunch in the car that we had prepared this morning and then off to our weekly library trip. We love checking out new libraries. This one was so neat!
A small entrance just for little people.
Where of course a show had to be performed for mommy.
It seemed as if we were at a children's museum rather than the library but we did come home with three bags full of books! Plenty to keep us busy.
They were both arguing with me when I told them to put some back because they would not fit into the bags. "Oh,we'll just carry them." they say.
Well guess who has to carry 50 books to the car? Uh, ME!
It was a full day, and a really great one.
