We wriggled, and we rhymed...

...and Kien is so independent he doesn't want to stay put one minute next to his mama! While all the other babes were being snuggled and sung to and tickled by their parent Kien was zooming around the room trying to make friends with everyone. And then he started collecting the stray balls that didn't get picked up from an earlier song sequence. Of course when the other kids saw Kien had colourful balls it was all on with them trying to snatch them off him. But my tricky little guy can crawl fast (as commented by one mother witnessing his antics), and he was across the room with the balls before the other kids knew what was going on. So for the entire half hour at the Grey Lynn library I was chasing after Kien. When we did manage to have a song and dance together I had to be vigorous with the swinging and turning and the jumping, because otherwise he loses interest and wriggles to get down.

We caught the bus down Williamson Ave, and made it home by 11:30 in time for his lunch and nap. So looks like we are going to do this more often now that it doesn't eat into his nap time, which was what I struggled with previously when I was just walking home. Why didn't I think of taking the bus before now?

I am loving my Tuesdays with Kien.
