Sometimes you just gotta put your big girl boots on and...READ. I was the reader today at Storytime Around the Square and shared one of my very favorite books, Sixteen Cows, with about 300 preschoolers. OK, really maybe just 20, but from where I was sitting...
I have read at my kids' schools without incident or butterflies. But this was different. I guess because several of my friends were there and I was wearing that hat and those boots. Anyway, as with anything in life, you just have to do it. Put the fear aside and go for it. I know reading in front of a bunch of little people isn't exactly climbing Mt. Everest or running a marathon, but it was a little more nerve-wracking than I thought. But I did it. And it was fun. Especially when Number 3 announced he "had to pee" in the middle and got ticked when he realized I didn't "pause the story" while he was gone.
Another day, another story,
