Are you my mommy?

Cohen and I attend Lap Sit Story time at the Library every week or so. We love it. It gives us a good reason to go to the library and then to the park. It makes Friday's lots more fun.

Today the theme was boats and Mrs. Roberta read Mr. Gumpy's Outing. If you've never read this book, it's a good one…I recommend that you check it out at your local library next time you are there. Well in the book, Mr. Gumpy has a boat and all these animals ask for a ride in the boat. There is a chicken, a dog, a cat, a cow…you get the picture. Mrs. Roberta had pictures of all the animals, and as she was reading the story she would pull out a picture and ask the kids to name the animal.

Mrs. Roberta holds up a picture very similar to this one below….

…and Cohen answers "mommy."

He didn't answer on any of the other animals. Why couldn't "mommy" be a dog, or a cat…why does "mommy" have to be a pig? I know I wasn't looking so great today, but come on Cohen!

Well, I can't be mad at a kid that's a cute as Cohen. After the story we danced and sang. It was loads of fun. At the end of the Story time, Mrs. Roberta gave us a craft. She gave us the pieces to make our very own sailboat at home. It was the first time Cohen ever used glue. We had so much fun…and he only tried to eat it a couple of times.

We had so much fun making the sailboat that we decided we should keep going. We tore up some construction paper and glued it back together. Check out our creations.


  1. Beautiful art work. Nan and Pops need some of these creations for our refrigerator!!

  2. Great sail boat Cohen!! Lilly's didn't even make it to the glue step, she tried to eat the paper, the stick and the bag. We had fun, I will definately bring Lilly again soon.

  3. So fun! I can't wait for T and I to get to go to library story time here this summer. I hope it's as fun as what you guys do.

    And don't feel bad...Tristyn pointed out the window at some cows the other day and said, "mama." :)
