I took Zoe to Story Time this morning. I love taking her every week! It's fun to meet other moms and get Zoe out with other kids. They may be older than her, but one day she'll be the same age.
Today we read "Our Tree Named Steve" by Alan Zweibel. What a cute story! I really enjoyed it. I definitely suggest you checking it out from your local library and reading it. I'm half tempted to buy it for Zoe -- though I know she won't be interested in it till a lot later in her little life.
After the story everyone was invited to go outside to get their very own baby tree to plant in their yards! How fun! They had a few different types to choose from. The one I chose is called May Day. I tried looking up a picture on Google to show you what it will look like, but I can't figure out how to do anything on this Mac! :D So you will have to look at it yourself.
After we got our tree -- in a fancy milk jug filled with dirt and water -- Zoe dove right in to handle the mud. I figured it would be fine to let her experiment with mud. Mud doesn't hurt anyone, right? Wrong. She looked at her hand, dirty and muddy, and wiped it on my shirt. I didn't know what to do! My hands were full holding my daughter and a tree, all the while her wiping her dirty little hands on my shirt. I asked my friends to help me out -- all the while a photographer from the newspaper took a million pictures of the whole ordeal. Afterward she asked me if it would be ok if she used some of the pictures in the paper.
I can't wait to see what it will look like. I've already asked family to save it for me so I can keep it and put it in Zoe's baby book -- that I've never touched. =\
What a day!
